    A "must visit" in Queenstown! The view from the very top was amazing. Enjoyed the Hakka experience and luge ride. Buffet dinner not so good but the dessert section was delicious.

    Very steep gondola ride that can be quite exciting. The view on top is unparalleled. I enjoyed the viewing deck and just the spacious indoor sitting area to relax. And don't forget about the luge!

    It's a very good spot for dining and sight seeing. Good place for family friends. The food is good too reasonable not too expensive.

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.
