The leaves have fallen, the days are getting shorter and there is a chill in the air as we head into one of our peak seasons, Winter.

Surrounded by snow caped mountains Queenstown is New Zealand’s Home Winter and home to a range of festivals including:

Lumify Laneways: a journey through a series of unique nightscapes with illumination, installation, and performance.

The Rabbit Hole: A unique festival where we blend mind-blowing performing arts with world class musicians, at the most insane venue for a dance music even

.and more


The region also boasts four ski areas, all within a handy 20 to 90 minute drive of Queenstown, open from mid June. These ski fields boast a range of terrain for all levels whether you’re keen to conquer the basics, enjoy groomed runs, tackle off-piste, throw down some freestyle tricks or experience the thrill of night skiing. With the first snowfalls, you can feel the buzz in town as skiers and snowboarders gear up for a season of fun.
