Queenstown ‘loaded’ with great value spring deals

Following Queenstown’s Great Hotel Giveaway last week, now there are even more great reasons to book a holiday to New Zealand’s spectacular four season lake and alpine resort during September and October.

Over 100 special ‘Spring Loaded’ offers are now available on, giving visitors sharp deals on a huge range of accommodation, activities and dining around the Queenstown district.

Destination Queenstown CEO Tony Everitt is encouraging people to “get in quick” to take advantage of the great deals.

“Whether you have an appetite for adventure and the mountains or are more at home tracking down a delicious meal and fine wine, Queenstown provides the perfect mix of action and relaxation for an unforgettable short break or holiday,” he said.

“Springtime combines the best of both worlds - warmer temperatures, longer days and fresh, bright colours transform the landscape but there’s still snow on the mountains for great spring skiing and riding at any of our region’s six ski fields.

“With great deals and plenty of availability for accommodation ranging from budget to five-star, as well as flights and activities, there’s never been a better time to come.”

Queenstown has a huge range of activities to choose from year-round. Those looking for a different pace can test their skills on world-class golf courses, explore scenic trails on foot or bike, sample award-winning Central Otago wines and local cuisine, enjoy a spa treatment or peruse the town’s many shops, galleries, bars, cafes and restaurants. High octane thrills include skydiving, bungy jumping, jet boating, ziplining and paragliding.

Queenstown is also the gateway to the picturesque historic goldmining village of Arrowtown, Glenorchy’s epic Lord of the Rings scenery, and Milford and Doubtful Sounds.

Not-to-be-missed events on the spring calendar include the much-anticipated Classic All Blacks versus French Classics rugby match on 18 September and the ‘Taste Queenstown’ food, wine and art festival on 8-9 and 15-16 October.
