Location


The Glebe Apartments are in the centre of it all.

The Glebe is centrally located on the corner of Stanley and Beetham Streets, just a two minute walk into the heart of the town centre and a brief stroll to the edge of Lake Wakatipu and the lovely Queenstown Gardens.

Queenstown is a compact village and you can walk virtually everywhere…cafes, clubs, gardens, shopping and galleries…in minutes. And the Glebe is your perfect base for exploring all of the exciting activities that the area has to offer.

Queenstown is in the heart of the Southern Lakes Region of the South Island in New Zealand. The region is renowned for unspoiled access to skiing, hiking, fishing and river or lake adventures. It is also becoming known for the superb Central Otago wines, especially Pinot Noir.

Queenstown's unique appeal is its diversity. Surrounded by spectacular scenery and a constantly changing landscape, Queenstown presents a new opportunity for exploration and experience every day.

The range of activities and outdoor pursuits is extensive - perfect for adventurers and leisure seekers alike. Both a summer and a winter destination, Queenstown offers year round adventure.

Between November and April the region offers great hiking, biking, golfing, fishing, and river and lake based activities. From the end of June until early October, Queenstown is a ski and snowboard resort with two downhill fields, heliskiing and the hugely popular winter festival.

Driving

A spectacularly-beautiful six hour drive from Christchurch will take you across the Canterbury Plains and Mackenzie Country where you can catch a glimpse of Aorangi/Mt Cook, New Zealand's highest mountain. Then up over Lindis Pass, past various alpine lakes (and a fascinating Salmon Farm), and then onto the Southern Lakes Region. The drive from Dunedin is equally scenic and passes through Lawrence, where gold was discovered in 1861, setting off the Otago Gold Rush.

Alternatively you may choose to take the West Coast route and stop off at Franz Joseph and Fox Glaciers on the way to Queenstown. The drive over Haast Pass is magnificent.

There is a selection of regular shuttle services and transfers which can be booked in advance from any one of these South Island tourist locations.
