Queenstown

This tourist mecca on the South Island of New Zealand is a small town with lots of charm. There are various stories about how the town was named, the most popular suggesting that a local gold digger exclaimed that the town was “fit for Queen Victoria”. It is now known for its commerce-oriented tourism, especially adventure and ski tourism. It is popular with anyone who wants to throw themselves out of a plane or off a bridge, we used the town as our base to hike the Great Walks of Milford and Routeburn.
