Queenstown, New Zealand

Thinking of where to go for summer? Why not spend some time in beautiful and exciting Queenstown, New Zeland? According to Marie Javins, “Queenstown is synonymous with adventure sports — jet boating began here in the 60’s, and commercial bungee jumping was invented here.”

In addition to the adrenaline rush the activities in Queenstown will give you, people also come out to the area to just sit back and get away from it all. “The natural scenery around Queenstown is stunning, easily making it the number one destination in the South Island.” Also, there is a relaxing and natural setting to enjoy by Lake Wakatipu. An experience by the Lake is precious because if the calm of the water won’t put you into a state of bliss, then the fresh air you will breath from the Remarkables and Eyres mountain ranges, (at the foot of the lake), will rejuvenate you.

Queenstown is consistently mentioned among the top destinations in the world by travel magazines. The hotspot has been called the “adventure capital of the world” because it has every imaginable outdoor activity, but since there is so much available to non-thrill seekers, it’s the ideal getaway.

One other interesting fact about the territory is that it offers some fairly unique activities to participate in. One of these quirky pleasures is grabbing some pals, “renting a car and then ditching your underwear; and in that order.”

Queenstown has a road called the Crown Range Road, also known as “The Bra Road”. Your drive will come complete with “some breathtaking panoramas, an authentic 1845 gold rush pub (the Cardrona Hotel), and a length of fence displaying underwear. Passing motorists leave their unmentionables on the fence, and so can you.”

Queenstown is a travel Mecca for backpackers and luxury travelers and if you are interested in taking a trip down (or up there), know that although summer and winter are the “star seasons” to visit, the area is a gorgeous and a aswome experience all year round.
