Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Founded on gold, sustained on scenery, developed on adrenalin, Queenstown is unlike anywhere else in New Zealand. It is the countrys tourism mecca, with lots of good reasons: mountains, rivers, lakes, climate, snow sports, tramping, fishing, bungee jumping, whitewater-rafting the list goes on and on. Neville Peat provides a guide to the region, with descriptions of its highlights. Queenstown is a strollers town and the book opens with places around town that can be visited on foot. The next chapter introduces many of the activities, free as well as commercial, that are available. Walks some short, others serious tramps can be found near the town and along the shores of Lake Wakatipu. The surrounding region offers trips to old gold-mining sites, lakeside drives, and some challenges. There is also a chapter on winter, a special time in Queenstown as people arrive from all over the world to enjoy skiing, snowboarding and other sports.
