Queenstown

Things We Love:

Adrenaline sports are like breakfast cereal here so get ready to do everything from sky diving and zip lining to wake boarding and lugeing.

Fergburger is pretty much where the whole town ends up after a night out – it can get just a little busy, we suggest a buddy system.

The bungy capital of the world, people over 75 jump for free… grandma?

There’s a lake and it gets toasty in the summer. Get in.

Things we wish we’d known:

There are 82 wineries in Central Otago, which equals a whole lotta fine wine.

Frisbee Golf Course… cos you can.

Milford Sound – take a cruise, helicopter or plane ride through this fjord for some epic scenery.

This is the pocket rocket of all the Queenstown bars. Hit it at the right time (we like it late), but bear in mind there is a substantial staircase to conquer. The space is small, with a bar to one side, Read More

Bardeaux
Bardeaux

Cold outside? Then get in here! A big ass roaring fire place surrounded by sofas and chairs gives this place more of a living room feel than a drinking hole. It’s all dark wood with a big chunky bar to Read More

Grab a wingman, ideally one who looks like they know the place, and get them to tow you into this well hidden and high up bar. Sure there’s a restaurant down below but it’s the cocktail joint up the staircase Read More
