Sights & Landmarks in Queenstown
The spectacular mountain scenery and Lake Wakatipu dominate the view from most parts of town. Most attractions in Queenstown make the most of the view and it's enough reason to spend time in Queenstown even if you choose not to do anything else.
After that though, there are not a lot of things to 'See'. Its in the 'Do' category below where Queenstown really excels. Nevertheless, there are a few sights around the town to check out:
- Skyline Gondola. One of the best views is from the top of Bob's Peak reached by the Skyline Gondola. Breathtaking views of Coronet Peak, The Remarkables mountain range and across Lake Wakatipu to Cecil and Walter Peaks. It's truly magnificent and awe-inspiring!
- Queenstown Gardens (adjacent to centre of town). jutting out into lake Wakatipu, these botanical garden contain a variety of exotic and native trees and plants as well as a large pond and a range of facilities.
- Kiwi Birdlife Park, Upper Brecon St. Wildlife attraction featuring native New Zealand birds
