  • We happened to be in town when the Lumia light display was in the gardens. -4 but well worth it! Some amazing tree specimens in the gardens too.
  • Hot and happening - there is always some show going on. Amazing scenic trail for hiking or cycling. Good to pass time with family, friends or even solo
  • Beautiful gardens located at the other end of Queenstown beach. It's proximity to the town center make it an easy place to get to. Came by for the luma festival and spent an hour or two just wandering around the gardens. It isn't enormous but there are multiple pathways that go through the gardens or go by the lake. A few nice sculptures around as well a a bridge and fountain. It was still quite nice to walk around in winter.
  • Great place to relax and away from city hustle. Prefect photo place with scenic beauty all around
  • Scenic, beautiful. Great labels to let you know what you're looking at. Good paths for easy walks.

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.
