Sheltered in an inlet of Lake Wakatipu, the resort town of Queenstown enjoys a strong reputation for its adventuring and skiing opportunities.
Escape the urban bustle at The Remarkables Ski Area and Coronet Peak. Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at The Remarkable Sweetshop - Queenstown and Ivan Clarke Gallery. Take a break from Queenstown with a short trip to Milford Sound in Te Anau, about 1h 45 min away. On the 3rd (Tue), enjoy an adventurous day among the treetops at some of the top local zipline courses and adventure parks. There's much more to do: identify plant and animal life at Kiwi Birdlife Park, take in the exciting artwork at Silver Fern Gallery, steep yourself in history at Arrowtown Chinese Settlement, and browse the eclectic array of goods at Remarkables Market.

If you are flying in from Australia, the closest major airport is Queenstown International Airport. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 9th (Mon) so you can travel back home.
