Sheltered in an inlet of Lake Wakatipu, the resort town of Queenstown enjoys a strong reputation for its adventuring and skiing opportunities.
Change things up with these side-trips from Queenstown: Milford Foreshore Walk (in Milford) and Te Anau (Milford Sound, Lake Te Anau, & more). There's lots more to do: have some family-friendly fun at Skyline Queenstown, get the adrenaline pumping with an extreme tour, take in nature's colorful creations at Queenstown Garden, and take a memorable tour with Tours.

Plan my Queenstown trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Buenos Aires, Argentina to Queenstown is an approximately 21-hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and bus. The time zone changes from Argentine Time to New Zealand Standard Time, which is usually a 15 hour difference. Finish your sightseeing early on the 29th (Sat) so you can travel to Auckland.

The largest and most populous city in New Zealand, Auckland combines a rich history and thriving contemporary culture in an abundance of museums, art galleries, and performance venues.
Get out of town with these interesting Auckland side-trips: Stockade Hill (in Howick), Waiheke Island (Waiheke Community Art Gallery & Wine Tours & Tastings) and Matakana Village (in Matakana). And it doesn't end there: enjoy breathtaking views from SkyTower, get impressive views of Rangitoto Island, learn about all things military at Auckland War Memorial Museum, and step off the mainland to explore Tiritiri Matangi Visitor Centre.
