5 Reasons to Visit Queenstown NOW!

Queenstown is Open for Business!

Thinking of a last-minute weekend away? Both public and private school holidays are almost finished so NOW is the BEST time to Come Stay & Play with us at Spinnaker Bay apartments!

We've given this a little thought.  I mean there are dozens of reasons why 'now' is a great time to come and visit us.  Let's be honest, Queenstown is always a great place to visit.  There is an enormous variety of adventure activities, wineries, and a great dining and cafe culture.  And we are super pleased to be open after such a challenging year of COVID-19.  So amongst all of the doubts about travelling, let's talk about our 5 top reasons why it's great to visit Queenstown right now.

Here are 5 great reasons why:

1. The Remarkables Ski Field Extended their full-time opening hours until the end of this weekend, after which they’ll be scaling back to weekends only.  So this is a great opportunity to ski with smaller crowds on the mountains.  All services are operational and you should be able to buy your tickets online.

2. Queenstown is open for business – most tourism operators are running at either a full or reduced capacity, so scratch that adrenalin itch and try a Bungy, ride the Shotover Jet, go mountain biking, go skiing, go sky diving, rafting, river surfing, or canyon swinging! Follow the links to each operator for opening times.  Like The Remarkables' new opening hours, this is a great opportunity to tick off those adrenalin adventures while the crowds are low!

3. Wine Tours. What more do you need to know? Altitude Tours are running at full capacity and offer a great day out, tasting the very best wines Otago has to offer!  East of Queenstown is Gibbston Valley, home of NZ's spectacular Pinot Noir grape-growing region.  There are plenty of restaurants and vineyards where you can do tastings and grab a local garden-to-plate meal!

4. There are some great local events on in Queenstown – from art, culture and music, to sport, food/wine and community projects.  With life creeping back towards normality, consider popping down to Queenstown to be part of an event or community - it's a great way to make those connections and give yourself a reason to get out and about again.

5. Quite Times – Now that the families are heading back for school, and without the normal international tourism numbers, NOW has to be one of the best times to come and play! Enjoy few queues and less hustle and bustle on the inner township streets. Traffic is less stressful and getting a reservation at the favourite restaurant is much easier!
