Queenstown Hill Walk

A steep climb

Time: 2 to 3 hours return

Grade: Moderate/Difficult

Start: Belfast Street Get Google Maps Directions

The amazing views from the top of Queenstown Hill are worth the 500 metre climb! Start your hike on Belfast Street (a steep street which is only the start of your climb). You'll wind up through a pine forest towards the summit of Te Tapunui. There are information plaques along the path explaining the history of the area and how it came to be the adventure capital of New Zealand.

At the summit you're rewarded with 360 views of the entire Queenstown area including Lake Wakatipu, the Remarkables and Cecil Peak and see the big iron "Basket of Dreams" sculpture. After you've had a rest and enjoyed the views it's a whole lot easier coming down!

Distance: 1.5km each way

Our first trip to New Zealand with our one year old baby. Was little bit scare. Used Ezi car rental for car hire. Wonderful experience. Communication was quick and awesome. Customer care responded to all queries efficiently. Got the exact same car what was promised during booking. Car was sparkling clean and smooth to drive. 100% recommended.
