Queenstown Lakes District
Queenstown
Surrounded by majestic mountains from all sides, Queenstown is located on the shores of Lake Wakatipu on New Zealand’s South Island. There is a clear division between each of the four seasons. Summer has blue skies and sunshine. Autumn hosts a riot of brilliant colors. Winter is cool and refreshing with the mountains covered in snow. Spring sees the return of blossoming flowers. Queenstown is often called New Zealand's "Adventure Capital". Queenstown's Kawarau Bridge is famous for being the birthplace of bungee jumping. Other than the extraordinary opportunity to go skiing and snowboarding in the winter, you can try bungee jumping, skydiving, canyon swinging, jetskiing, horseback riding and long-distance hiking in this natural paradise. Each and every one of these activities is sure to give you an adrenaline rush!

Boat Tour
d36***08A half-day tour of the lake by steamboat + Walter Plateau Ranch tour is a beautiful experience that is fresh in the memory of the Queenstown trip. From Queenstown Port to the Ranch Wharf, the steamboat takes 45 minutes one-way, a total of 1.5 hours round-trip voyage, and boat viewing. One is to watch the ancient style of the ship. The steamship TSS Earnslaw, built in 1912, has been baptized by wind and waves for more than a hundred years. It has grown stronger and stronger over time. It is the only coal-fired steamship still in normal operation in the southern hemisphere. Wandering on the boat, looking at the handsome captain at the helm, watching the young fireman swinging a shovel to deliver coals, listening to the melodious music of the teacher's nai luthier, and tasting the authentic taste of coffee and desserts. It is leisurely and comfortable. The second is to appreciate the beautiful scenery of the lake. On the deck, in front of the portholes, and in the corridors, you can admire the scenery of Lake Wakatipu up close. The lake breeze is blowing, the waves are dancing happily, the scenery is charming and refreshing.

摆渡修行Queenstown. Call for the dreamy Queenstown! Have been to several times, but always convinced that she is intoxicating beauty, blue sky, clouds and shadows, when and where, the movement. Reading you from mountain to lake, thousands of times, still will not be tired. I don't know what magic blues are hidden in the snowy mountains and lakes, which attract your heart, and go on and on, and miss it again and again.

Strait/Fjord
National Park
DJDQThe must-see fjord in New Zealand is also one of the most popular. There are many small fjords that are not accessible to ordinary tourists. Taking a bus from Queenstown will have to go over the mountains and mountains. Depart early in the morning and return after dark. The effect of raining on cloudy days is discounted, but the advantage is that you can see the rainbow. There are some simple meals on board that you can buy and eat yourself. It's pretty tiring all day. This fjord is not as spectacular as the Norwegian fjord.
