Shallow Bay

Sheltered in an inlet of Lake Wakatipu, the resort town of Queenstown enjoys a strong reputation for its adventuring and skiing opportunities. With extensive and impressive surrounding mountain ranges, the area boasts a wealth of vantage points and numerous chances to enjoy ever-popular snow sports at centers nestled near the top of the snowcapped mountains. For a more relaxing, warmer, and cerebral Queenstown holiday, head to the wine producing region--said to be the most southerly in the world--and walk through the protected nature reserves surrounding the town. Plan the details of your Queenstown holiday and any onward adventuring with our easy-to-use New Zealand holiday maker app.
