Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    I had a great time at the Kiwi Park! I spent three hours there and attended the Kiwi encounter and conservation show, which were both very engaging and educational. The staff were so kind and welcoming, they were all willing to chat and offer more information. I also learned a lot that I didn’t already know about bees and New Zealand honey which was an added positive. The only downside (which isn’t the fault of the staff or park) is that several other visitors ignored the rules and took flash photography of the Kiwis which was really disappointing - please don’t do that if you visit! I’d gladly come back and bring more people with me, a highlight of my trip to Queenstown for sure.

    The path is clear. It's an easy track in my opinion yet the view is still wonderful from the top of the hill. Perfect place to zoned out and just breath the fresh air.

    It's my very first solo hiking. The path is clear. The track mostly in an open space with fascinating view. It also has a non-flush toilet near the Saddle point. The hardest part is from Saddle point to the Summit point. But it was all paid off when I reached the top.

    A lot better venue and a shorter bus trip for those who are new to the skiing world. The beginners area looked a lot more inviting but i spend the morning chatting going up to the look out in the viewing platform from the gondola while my partner went off for a snowboard

    We did the track around Moke Lake in about 2 hours, though probably went faster than most. A little elevation gain in places, but nothing too severe. We were there on a bright sunny day and it was very enjoyable.

    It was a rainy day in Queenstown. This outdoor mall has lovely shops to check out. For the restaurants, most have lunch that ends at 2:30 p.m., and they do not reopen until 5 p.m.

    Went to Buzzstop to celebrate my daughter's birthday with friends for the second year in a row. Great service, excellent cheese platter and pizzas, and plenty of space and fun things to do with kids. Thank you for making our day special. Highly recommend.

    We drove up to the Remarkable from our accommodation in Queenstown, the fee to get throught the gates of the national park Was $15NZ. The drive was steep, narrow and windy but 95% was sealed and safe. At the top you will fing the snow field chairlift and ski centre. It snow when we were there so a little addrd bonus. Rug up it was really old and windy at the to. Plenty of spots to stop on the way for photos etc.
