Queenstown Family Activities


The scope of Queenstown family activities means your holiday will only be missing one thing - what you can do on your next visit.

As a holiday destination Queenstown has provided memories for generations of families in its natural outdoor playground as well as the numerous indoor attractions all designed to entertain and keep boredom and computer games a non-event during your stay.

The activities you can do as a group to get your pulses racing are endless. Rafting, jetboating, mountainbiking and the famous Queenstown Luge are just a start.

Considering a thrilling birthday treat for one of your party?
Try a tandem skydive, paragliding or a bungy jump to ensure a memorable occasion. A boat trip and farm visit to Mt Nicholas Station on the steam-powered Earnslaw will give the family a day out with great views of the area and the opportunity to see High Country farm life far removed from the urban environment.

A hot air balloon ride gives a fantastic perspective of the area from the air as does the number of scenic fixed wing flights and helicopter trips to mountain tops for a picnic and photo opportunities to record your stay.

A FWD tour up through the rugged river valleys of the areas fording streams and retracing the steps of the area’s history of the goldmining days can be combined with a goldpanning expedition of your own.

In the rare event of a rainy day the family can go head to head in a bowling tournament, cut some moves ice- skating or enjoy a film at one of the cinema’s.

The Kiwi birdlife park has over 20 native species in five acres within an easy stroll from downtown Queenstown.

Family accommodation close to town ensures much of your time can be spent walking from one attraction to the next.
