Queenstown accommodation comes in many types and there is something to suit your requirements and budget. Queenstown lies on the south island of New Zealand and the region is known as the adventure capital of the world. Here you can get your adrenaline to almost any level you desire by taking part in a multitude of frightening activities including jet boat rides through mountain river chasms, bungy jumping from high bridges or cablecars or skiing and snowboarding at one of the many excellent ski resorts in the area. Queenstown itself is located in a magnificent valley on the shores of Lake Wakatipu and most of the accommodation is located along its shores or in the town centre. Most of the tours and shuttle buses to the snow resorts will pick you up from your accommodation and drop you back at the end of your day.
Queenstown exists for the tourism industry. The area can be used as a base for exploring the surrounding countryside. Skiing and snowboarding in winter is incredibly popular. Tours to places like Milford Sound are a must and a trip on the lake aboard the steamship Earnslaw is a wonderful experience. The engine room is on full view to the passengers and you can watch the stokers tending the boilers as you head to Walter Peak station for a superb meal.
