About Queenstown

Must See  

Perched halfway up Ben Lomond Peak is the Skyline complex, a short walk away from Crowne Plaza. Jump on a gondola and see the city disappear as you ascend, and the views stretch out across Lake Wakatipu to the mountains. Enjoy lunch at the top or simply soak up the scenery.

Must Do

On the shores of crystal-clear Lake Wakatipu, beneath the Remarkables mountain range, Queenstown is known as the adrenaline capital of the world. Winter skiing complements summertime activities like bungee-jumping, skydiving and mountain-biking.

Don't Go Home Without

The Central Otago wine region has won the world's best burgundy award for one of its pinot noirs. With dozens of vineyards within 20 minutes of the Crowne Plaza Queenstown, ask our Concierge for tips on a guided tour.

Visa Information

Having a valid passport and the right visa is key to a trouble-free entry into New Zealand. When you arrive, your passport must be valid for at least three months beyond your intended departure date, and if required, have a valid New Zealand visa.

You do not need a visa to visit New Zealand if you are:

  • A New Zealand or Australian citizen or resident
  • A UK citizen and/or passport holder (you can stay up to six months)
  • A citizen of a country which has a visa waiver agreement with New Zealand (you can stay up to three months).

If you don’t meet the above, then you’ll need a visitor visa, which allows you to holiday in New Zealand for up to nine months. The fastest and easiest way to apply for a visitor visa is online.
