We are going on a weekend getaway trip to Queenstown to experience the best it has to offer. You won't want to miss out on this one, ladies - wine, food, spas, and some other "fun stuff" to be revealed!
Queenstown - New Zealand's adventure and fun capital - no better place for a long weekend getaway!
You might have been to Europe but you haven't seen much of your own beautiful backyard? Now it's time to tick off some of those fantastic activities and adventures that you previously left to the tourists...We have a variety-filled, bucket-list program over the next few days...
Friday is arrival day! We will provide transfers from the airport to our accommodation. The next 3 days are full of fun, taking in all the highlights that Queenstown has to offer! Please try to fly back home as late as you can on the Tuesday so as to maximize your time in this amazing place. We stay in lovely boutique accommodation close to town.
Friday evening we will go out for a fabulous meal together and get to know each other.
Over the next few days highlights of the trip include:
-Boutique Wine Tour : we explore three varying wine sub-regions to visit four of the area's finest vineyards in the Gibbston, Bannockburn and Cromwell basin and enjoy a sumptuous platter lunch at a renowned vineyard restaurant.
-Kiwi Birdlife Park : Have you ever seen a Kiwi? No? then it's about time! The Kiwi Birdlife Park is home to over 20 native species of wildlife on breed for release programs or in rehab due to injury. Get to know your backyard fauna in person and support a worthy cause in doing so!
-Onsen Hot Pools : time to get a little indulgent! Soak in an idyllic cedar-lined hot tub with panoramic views!
-Shopping : of course there will be some free time for you to have some retail therapy in the buzzy town centre and "support local"
-Scenic Cruise on the iconic TSS Earnslaw . No trip to Queenstown in complete without doing this classic trip on Lake Wakatipu.
-Gondola ride : let's ride up Queenstown Hill to take a look over the stunning mountains and lake...and maybe even partake in a fun luge ride
