Puzzling World

For over forty years Puzzling World has been messing with people’s heads no matter what age, nationality or experience. With a mix of bizarre buildings, rooms of illusion and the world-famous Great Maze this attraction is designed to baffle your brain and challenge your perceptions of reality.

We have the world’s first 3-D ‘Super Maze’ plus an incredible collection of Illusion Rooms that have to be seen to be believed. The themes of wonder and visual trickery doesn’t just come with admission, as some of our attractions are free.

Walk into one of the most unique cafes ever seen. Dozens of puzzles on the tables await the curious and looking up reveals a massive, mirrored kaleidoscope. Grab a bite to eat or drink from our café, then test your skills with a puzzle or brain teaser.

Routeburn Track

While the Routeburn Track may be a shorter multi-day hike, it has some of the biggest scenery. With soaring mountain peaks, huge valleys, waterfalls and jewel-like lakes the track links the Mount Aspiring National Park with Fiordland National Park.The highest point of the track is 1,255 metres above sea level - so the views are simply spectacular.

The part of New Zealand that the Routeburn Track winds through has been shaped by successive glaciations into fiords, rocky coasts, towering cliffs, lakes and waterfalls. Birdlife is prolific through forested sections of the track; native tomtits, robins, fantails, wood pigeons and bellbirds are commonly seen, as well as the cheeky Kea, the world's only alpine parrot.

This is not a loop track and can be walked in either direction; one track end is at the Routeburn Shelter (near Glenorchy) and the other is at The Divide (closer to Te Anau). It is recommended that this track is avoided between May - September, when there is high risk of avalanches.

Moke Lake is a beautiful scenic spot off the beaten track, while still close to town.

The stunning lake is framed by mountains and is a popular spot for walking, cycling, camping and in warmer temperatures, even swimming.

Located just a 15-minute drive from Queenstown, the Moke Lake Loop Track is a popular short, undulating walk and cycle track. The track takes you right around the edge of picturesque Moke Lake, through grassland and surrounded by towering mountains. After a short climb, you will be rewarded with a stunning view overlooking the lake.
