  • Situated in the center of Queenstown it's a great walk along Lake Wakatipu. The rose garden is beautiful and welcoming. A Frisbee Golf is also available to the public.
  • Always worth a stroll through the gardens. New rose beds are coming on well. The wee bridge is great for photos and there's Frisbee golf here.
  • Went on a gorgeous day. Sprinklers were on unnecessarily and seeking pipes were left unattended. But many people wouldn't even notice. A lovely spot for a wind down after the business across the water.
  • Been coming to QT for years and never went to the gardens. OMG it become my morning routine once I discovered it! It's quiet, the views are beautiful, and you feel like your miles from town. It's a great little area for a meditative walk or for exercise. I saw a few mountain bikers as well if you're into that. There's a series of gravel and paved walkways so not everyone has to take the same route. Oh there's also disc golf too.
  • Calm and quiet place. This is so close to beach and water activities. It's very big and gives a beautiful view of lake wakatipu

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.
