Queenstown Ice Arena, Queenstown

4.4
#8 of 17 in Fun & Games in Queenstown
Learn to skate with or without a puck at Queenstown Ice Arena, an indoor skating rink hosting a range of activities. Take a beginner course in ice hockey, or skate at your own leisurely pace. The arena provides family-friendly fun and a relaxing viewing area, serving food and drink for spectators and those just off the ice. For something completely different, test out your curling skills, or try the sport of broomball--a more accessible take on ice hockey (with no skating required!).

Where to stay in Queenstown

To enjoy views of Lake Wakatipu in a luxury setting, try one of the many boutique and long-established hotels of the downtown area. As a resort town, Queenstown also offers a range of more modest accommodations, ideal for adventurers, backpackers, and those eager to spend more time outside than in. These come in the form of hostels, rental apartments, campsites, and suburban motels. A good local bus service provides connections between the downtown and suburban areas, and out to the surrounding attractions, and many accommodations offer package tours.
