Top 5 Reasons You Must Visit Queenstown
Queenstown is a city bustling with activity. The small town located in New Zealand’s south is jam-packed with unreal experiences from its breathtaking scenery to its adrenaline-fuelled activities, from its serene golf courses to its world-class dining, every type of traveller has something to look forward to.
Queenstown will be your base for 9 days on our fully escorted New Zealand South Island Golf Tour from March 18-26, 2020. You will stay in the centre of town at the Crowne Plaza Hotel and play 5 incredible rounds of golf.
Here are the top 5 reasons you must visit stunning Queenstown.
1. Jack’s Point
With a backdrop of the Remarkables mountain range and stunning panorama views of Lake Wakatipu, Jack’s Point is an unforgettable golfing experience.
It is one of the most visually spectacular courses in the world designed in harmony with the natural environment. The course weaves through grassland, bush, rock outcrops all the way down to the edge of the water.
It has been highly rated by many in the golfing world including Golf Digest who ranked Jack’s Point in its exclusive World’s Top 200 Golf Courses list.
2. Everywhere is Postcard-worthy
Breathtaking alpine ranges and beautiful vistas are ample, however, you will appreciate the smaller towns just as much.
Arrowtown is a former gold mining town back in the 1860s that is stuck in time with its charming historic buildings. Its low population makes it the perfect place to relax and wander around freely.
Nestled on the banks of the Lake Wanaka and surrounded by the Southern Alps is the beautiful town of Wanaka. Its overwhelming scenery and magical ambiance will certainly help you find your serenity.
3. The Food and Bar Scene is to Dine For
There are a number of bars and restaurants in the region that produce incredible local cuisines.
If you looking for a place to wet your whistle you could head over to The Winery and taste over 80 of NZ’s best wines. Alternatively, you could find a seat overlooking the lake at Eichardt’s Bar.
If you want to eat locally-sourced food, you can choose a selection of NZ’s best meats at Botswana Butchery or delve into the fresh local seafood at The Pier. Or find out why everyone waits out the door at Fergburger. Regardless of what cuisine you crave, the options are endless.
4. But seriously, the Golf is Really Good
We already talked about how great Jack’s Point is, however, there are many courses in Queenstown that should not be underestimated.
For instance, Queenstown Golf Club is internationally recognised as one of the most picturesque in the world. Millbrook is a championship course that hosts NZ’s premier golf event, the NZ Open. Whilst, Wanaka is an incredible course that offers spectacular alpine scenery.
5. Queenstown is incredible all year round
One of the best things about Queenstown is that seasonal changes are never an issue. However, if you are looking for the optimal time to visit, it’s March.
The golden and red hues dominate the hills contrasting strikingly with the deep blue of the lakes. The temperature is cool without being too cold, and the crowds have left leaving the city to yourself.
So what are you waiting for?
