Come – Explore Queenstown, New Zealand.
The best way to describe this beautiful lake town is it is a natural playground for all ages, from taking it easy to bungy jumping, from bbq on the lakefront to fine dining, from jet boating to skyline gondola, from skiing the slopes to sipping wine by the fire. Whatever takes your fancy.
You will find Queenstown sitting on the shores of the South Island’s Lake Wakatipu. The third largest lake in New Zealand, 379 meters deep, which means the lake bed sits below sea level. Most interesting fact about this lake is that five rivers flow into the Lake, but only one river (Kawarau) flows out.
Queenstown has an amazingly vibrant energy. I felt so energized here in Queenstown. The fresh air, the cold crisp mornings, the beautiful mountain ranges, the still water reflecting the moon at night. When you hear people say natural, I bet it does not get any more natural than Queenstown.
