Queenstown is on the edge of a huge mountain. So depending on where you are at, it offers great views of the surrounds. There is not many locals here as much of the people coming here are tourists, so walking through town you know that it caters for the tourist. Do go and walk in the botanical gardens. It is almost hidden away, right by the lakeside. There are bowls, tennis, and even frisby golf to play. The park is a hidden gem. There are also a few small towns arround to explore.
Queenstown is definitely a party town - there's a lot of fun to be had here so make sure you pop in.
