Queenstown is a popular adventure spot in Otago, in the southwest of New Zealand’s South Island. Built around the Queenstown Bay inlet on Lake Wakatipu, this popular urban city is best known for its outdoor and adventure-based attractions and activities. Queenstown was first discovered and settled by the Maori. Nathaniel Chalmers, guided by Reko, chief of the Tuturau, was the first European to enter the area. Immigrant settlers followed in the 1860s. William Gilbert Rees and Nicholas von Tunzelmann were the first European explorers to establish a country farm in the location of the current town center in 1860. Queenstown was named in honor of Queen Victoria in 1850, while the Maori name for the city is Tahuna, which means “shallow bay.” Every season in Queenstown has unique experiences, and winter is no exception. There are adventures galore waiting for the avid thrill-seeker. No matter what your preferred winter activity, Queenstown has everything for the active adventurer as well as the casual explorer.
