Queenstown is a resort town located in the southwest part of New Zealand's South Island. The town is built around an inlet on Lake Wakatipu, a long thin "S"-shaped lake, and has spectactular views of nearby mountains.

Queenstown is a centre for adventure tourism. Skiing, jet boating, bungee-jumping, and mountain biking are all popular excursions in the Queenstown region.

Along with Mount Ruapehu, Queenstown is a major center for snow sports in New Zealand, with people from all over the country and many parts of the world travelling to ski at the four main mountain skifields (Cardrona, Coronet Peak, The Remarkables, and Treble Cone).

Locally, Queenstown has a reputation as one of New Zealand's wine and cuisine centers. Neighboring, historic Arrowtown features excellent restaurants and bars, and Queenstown lies close to the center of a small wine-producing region, reputed to be the world's southernmost.
