Way back when Queenstown had gravel roads, this track had some character and it was an enjoyable experience to accomplish. Especially so because most of us drove in to the area and flying was for the birds, so the view was always inspiring. Later, we...More

Decided to walk from town centre to the trail - bad idea. Looking back, the walk from town to trail was actually the steepest and worst part and almost made us quit doing the hike completely. Also the first 200m of the hill is the...More

We spent about an afternoon here (2+pm to 5+pm). A good work-out for the fit; for the not-so-fit, extra willpower will be needed. We were rewarded with a lovely panorama of Queenstown and its surroundings, and saw several planes take off from the airport! We...More

It was a very hot day so we went early! Awesome walk through the forest before coming out at the first stop. Worth the walk to the top to get 360 views! Took us 2hrs round trip with a snack at the top.

This trail is about 5 hours shorter than Ben Lomond and gives you views that are just as spectacular. You get to experience wooded forests and open vistas, all within an hour and a half of walking. The walk definitely isn't flat, but it's not...More

After completing the Milford Track, got some withdrawal symptoms back in Queenstown and so decided to go for a little walk up Queenstown Hill. A little steep in places, but a piece of cake when you do not have to carry a back pack as...More

Its well worth the hike to get to the top absolutely stunning views of Queenstown and the surrounding landscapes.The hike maybe steep for some people so I would suggest for whose less active to get the skyline gondola.

Tough little trek to the top for those of us well into middle age, but worth it for the view of Queenstown and the lake spread out below. Just take your time and wear good walking shoes.

It's the perfect place for you and your boyfriend Kim. We have visited NZ in January and February on 3 occasions. Can be wet anytime of year though and thus summer had been very hot though usually about mid 20s

Hello! It was pretty steep and I can imagine parts of the track would be slippery if it has been raining. I would suggest hiking boots if possible, my sneakers did ok though. Also take water, as it is a bit of a walk to the... More
