A trip to Coronet Peak is a must for views of Lake Wakitipu and surrounding areas. Go later in the day when the sun is behind you for some of the best views in the district. Take care on the road of you are not used to high mountain driving!

Kia ora Scott Hope you grabbed some great photos when you came up. It is a stunning view across the Queenstown basin. Can only echoyour comment regarding driving safely and carefully on the road. Stay left and drive at a comfortable speed as the road winds back and forth. Kind regards Nigel More

Once we visited the Coronet peak in Autumn, it's not sky season. But we can enjoy with the scenic view of Queenstown. This place is suitable for trekking and biking.

Took my husband here at that time he was just my boyfriend back then in late July 2015. I taught him how to snowboard and we had the best time. It was close to our hotel which was the Hilton so it was really handy.

Our Airbnb host told us to drive up to the Coronet Peak for a beautiful view of the Queenstown area. We were there at the end of New Zealand's summer and the views were indeed beautiful. We could see paragliders, the mountains and lake and Queenstown.

Be careful not to fall ! Concrete Peak is the ski resort nickname as is it lower than Remarks (1100 to 1600 m), so we unfortunately have rain over the winter, turning into ice when it goes down below zero... However, an unbelievable view (amazing) and the possibility to ski by night (Fri and Sat, from 6 to 9 pm,... More
