If you love adventure and have been dreaming of doing something epic, then Queenstown is the perfect destination for you. From bungee jumping to jet boating, there are so many things to see and do in this charming town.

Located on the shores of pristine Lake Wakatipu, Queenstown is set against the dramatic Southern Alps and is renowned for its range of outdoor activities. From bungee jumping off Kawarau Gorge Suspension Bridge to jet-boating on the Shotover and Dart rivers in summer or skiing on The Remarkables and Coronet Peak in winter, you’ll never run out of ways to get your adrenaline pumping!

Jet Boating

Queenstown has become New Zealand's adventure capital, and jet boating is one of the most popular adrenaline-filled activities to do in this spectacular location. Shotover Jet is the most famous jet boating tour in the area but there are plenty of other options to choose from!

Skippers Canyon Jet is another jet boating company that operates within the Shotover River canyons and is an excellent choice if you want to add more to your adventure. Their tour includes return transport along the incredible Skippers Canyon Road, as well as a ride on the jetboat!

KJet are also an excellent option if you're looking to take your jet boating experience in New Zealand to the next level. They offer multiple jet boating tours and even have semi-submersible jet boats that hit speeds of 80km/h!


Hydro Attack

Whether you're an adrenaline junkie or just want to try something new, the Hydro Attack Queenstown experience is a must. Using state-of-the-art technology, you'll be riding a six-metre semi-submersible shark boat that's the ultimate blend of shark and machine.

You'll be inside a 260hp, Seabreacher X watercraft that can accelerate from 0 to 80kms per hour in 3.9 seconds. It can also do vertical leaps 18 feet out of the water, dives up to 5 feet below the surface, 90 degree rolls and tight g-force turns on and in the stunning Lake Wakatipu.

Hydro Attack is the world's first tour operator of these unique semi-submersible machines so while you’re in Queenstown don’t miss your chance to have a go. Make your reservation online or call to book in advance at the lakefront kiosk (by Patagonia Chocolates on Earnslaw Park) 10 minutes before your trip departure time.


Ice Bars

If you’re looking for a unique experience, head to an Ice Bar in Queenstown. You can lounge in ice furniture, take spectacular photo opportunities among beautifully hand carved ice sculptures while drinking one of their delicious vodka cocktails.

You don’t need to worry about being too cold at Below Zero Ice Bar as the team fit you with fantastic warm winter jackets and special gloves & boots! You can also try out a famous ice shot luge to make your night more exciting!

During the day, the bars are filled with tourists but in the evening they come alive with locals and international travellers. It’s a great way to get to know people and soak up the good vibes.


The Cow Restaurant

The Cow Restaurant is one of Queenstown’s oldest restaurants and is a must-visit if you want to enjoy a classic New Zealand meal. The menu offers world renowned pizza, pasta, hot wholebread, soup, salad and fine wines.

The restaurant is located in a historic stone barn on Cow Lane. It’s a great place to have lunch or dinner and enjoy stunning views of the surrounding mountains.

The menu is extensive and you can choose from a range of meals from the sharing platters to the mains. The price is very reasonable and the food is delicious!


Queenstown is known as an outdoor adventurer’s paradise, but there are also some great shopping opportunities here. Whether you’re looking for souvenirs or high-end international stores, there are plenty of options to choose from.

For souvenirs, the Creative Queenstown Art & Craft Market is held every Saturday throughout the year in Earnslaw Park and offers 100% New Zealand made goods. You’ll also find a wide variety of artisan food and drinks to sample.

If you’re in the mood for something a bit more exciting, try one of the many water sports available in Queenstown. Canyoning and whitewater rafting are both popular options and can be enjoyed by the entire family.
