Destination Guide - Queenstown
Queenstown gets pulses racing year ‘round – take to the powdery snow on the majestic slopes in winter or water ski in lucid Lake Wakatipu in summer. Bungy jumping, jet boating and even heli-skiing are just some of the extreme activities for adrenalin junkies to undertake. In town, there are plenty of designer boutiques and gourmet restaurants to keep those with a penchant for relaxed indulgence occupied, too.
During summer the average temperatures hover between 20-25°C while in winter the daily average is around 12°C (and even colder on the slopes).
