Queenstown named NZ’s best destination

Queenstown named New Zealand’s best destination in TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice Awards

Queenstown, New Zealand (24 March, 2017) – Queenstown has once again been named the number one destination in New Zealand in the TripAdvisor Travellers' Choice Awards 2017.

Destination Queenstown chief executive Graham Budd was delighted with the news that Queenstown has been named New Zealand’s top holiday destination, after recently being voted Australasia’s leading destination at the World Travel Awards.

“We take great pride in being named New Zealand’s best destination, and I would encourage fellow New Zealanders who haven’t yet made the trip to consider hopping on a flight or hitting the road to discover for themselves why we’ve earned this accolade.”

“Autumn has arrived and it’s a truly stunning time of year, with the colours of the season beginning to fire, and cool crisp days to spend exploring, from the incredible scenery to the huge range activities. Whether you’re looking for an adventure or a rejuvenating break, Queenstown is within easy reach by road or air and is a place we would like to share with all New Zealanders,” he says.

Queenstown is joined in the top ten by three of our neighbouring destinations in Central Otago and Southland; Wanaka, Invercargill and Te Anau, which is great testament to the breadth of experiences and attractions in this special part of New Zealand.

Queenstown was also ranked the third best destination in the South Pacific region.

With that possibility in mind, are there any other countries that do a reasonably good job of electing their ceremonial head of state? There is no perfect model for New Zealand to follow but - arguably - Ireland has made a pretty good fist of it over the past 70 years or so. Ireland has roughly the same population as New Zealand, so the pool of talent is similar in size...
