Getting to know Queenstown


Queenstown’s vibrant culture, stunning landscape and thirst for adventure activities makes it one of the most loved holiday destinations in the world. From adrenaline junkies and weekend warriors to young families and nature enthusiasts, there’s something here for everyone.

With more direct flights into the international airport than ever before, Queenstown is an easy place to start your Hollyford Track guided walk. It is also an ideal place to stay an extra couple of nights and add to your escape.

There is a pre-departure briefing the evening before your walk at 5.30pm at The Spire Hotel, on Church Lane, between Earl and Church Sts. We start hotel pick ups from 6.30am on the morning of your departure. We recommend that all guests enjoy a good breakfast before departing Queenstown. But, if it is too early for you to eat, please ensure that you pack a breakfast to take with you.

Eating and drinking in Queenstown is like nowhere else in New Zealand. We boast an impressive selection of bars, wineries, fine dining restaurants and casual eateries. So whatever you’re looking for, you’ll find it in Queenstown.
