Queenstown won its name because "it was fit for Queen Victoria''.
Named after the royal, Queenstown became a wealthy place due to the second largest gold mines ever discovered in the world. Since then it has experienced a swell of visitors for a gold rush of a different kind - tourism.

Away from its historic heritage, Queenstown displays a big-city energy. Very compact, but with an incredible atmosphere of fun, Queenstown is surrounded by a knot of sun-kissed beaches on the shores of Lake Wakatipu and is the perfect base for your action packed vacation. From rafting, jetboating, skydiving, skiing, snowboarding, bungee jumping and so on, Queensland is a destination of long lasting memories as it has won the ranking of Adventure Capital of the World.
Along with natural beauty goes cultural splendor in Queenstown. If you want to explore the Queenstown of both worlds – natural and cultivated, you should tour it. The easiest way to view the town's magnificent setting is to hop aboard a Gondola and reach the nearby Bob's Peak for stunning views. But Queenstown is not only a destination to get involved with beautiful views, but an opportunity to participate in the natural life. Thus, along with extremes like Waterskiing and Scenic Helicopter flights goes historic Arrowtown.
Otherwise, you may enjoy Queenstown's laid-back feel during bar-hopping and eating out at its world-class restaurants. After filling dining, you may occupy yourself lakeside, but don't be in hurry to leave it as the sun goes down. This is the time when the best in Queenstown starts. You can find a waterside bench there and enjoy the most impressive sunsets you've ever seen.
There is a little something for everyone in Queenstown and its set of attractions have lifted it to prominence as one of the world's top tourism destinations and for a trip there you should consider an advance booking at Booked.net.
