  • I went on the road. Double Cone, Crown range and Coronet Peak is the youngest of the three brothers Queenstown high altitude roads. Compared with the two brothers, Double Cone and Crown is a gentle slope. Views in the distance is the eldest brother Double Cone big brother.

Where to stay in Queenstown

To enjoy views of Lake Wakatipu in a luxury setting, try one of the many boutique and long-established hotels of the downtown area. As a resort town, Queenstown also offers a range of more modest accommodations, ideal for adventurers, backpackers, and those eager to spend more time outside than in. These come in the form of hostels, rental apartments, campsites, and suburban motels. A good local bus service provides connections between the downtown and suburban areas, and out to the surrounding attractions, and many accommodations offer package tours.
