Nestled on the shores of Lake Wakatipu, overlooked by the majestic Southern Alps, the town was named for Queen Victoria.

Queenstown is the undisputed adventure capital of New Zealand – bungy jumping began here – and was the film location for Lord of the Rings trilogy of movies.

Queenstown feels like a ski resort town, but it is a year-round destination for outdoor activities, fine wines and dining, gold mining ghost town tours, guided nature walks by locals, and excursions to the Milford Sound and Fiordland National Park.

There are several gay welcoming accommodations, tour companies and restaurants, giving gay and lesbian visitors a lot of choice whatever the season or reason for a holiday in the Central Otago region.
