Queenstown, South Island, New Zealand.
Gay and Lesbian Hotels, Inns and Guest Houses - Reviews and Ratings. Gay and Lesbian Travel.

The Wakatipu region encompasses the towns of Queenstown, Arrowtown, Glenorchy, Kingston and Gibbston.

Queenstown has earned the reputation of being the ‘Adventure Capital of the World’ because of the adrenalin stirring, sanity-reducing adventures created by some of the locals. We’re talking about bungy jumping, skydiving, mountain climbing, skiing, rafting, kayaking, fishing, horse riding, cycling, walking, sailing, river surfing, jet boating, hang-gliding snowmobiling, snowboard, dancing, canoeing, heliskiing and parapenting. You get the picture. But over recent years, Queenstown has quietly expanded into all sorts of other attractions including new wineries, art galleries, arts trails and challenging golf courses.

Queenstown has a great variety of gay friendly quality accommodation ranging from world-class hotels, sophisticated lodges, boutique guesthouses and friendly backpackers. The choices mean that the gay and lesbian traveler can choose between international or kiwi style, in or out of town location, mountain or lake views, intimate or large venues, home-style or hotel-style service.

Downtown Queenstown is tucked along a picturesque bay on the shores of Lake Wakatipu. Dwarfed by the surrounding mountains, there are amazing views from just about everywhere. The town's compact shopping area is where you’ll find international labels alongside the best in New Zealand designs. Dining is a serious business here too, and there are more than a hundred great restaurants and stylish cafés from which to choose. And nothing goes better with a great meal than a great wine, and wines in the region of some of the very best New Zealand produces.

Getting here couldn’t be easier as the region is well served by major airlines. Air New Zealand and QANTAS fly direct from Sydney year round and extend their services to include Brisbane and Melbourne in the winter. Domestically, there are several connections each day from New Zealand's main centers of Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch. If traveling by road, you get the added bonus of driving along open roads through rugged mountains, around majestic lakes with magnificent landscapes of the Southern Alps of New Zealand.

Queenstown truly is a year round destination. Nights are as exciting as days. With more than 160 licensed bars and cafés in downtown Queenstown, live jazz, top DJ’s, long summer nights in a garden bar serving locally brewed beer or après ski in front of a roaring log fire make Queenstown a fun place to visit on all sorts of levels.

So, if you're looking for fun, enterainment, outdoor excitement, great restaurants and bars and a great year round destination, then Queenstown, South Island, New Zealand has it all for the gay and lesbian traveler.
