The top of Bob's Peak offers stunning views of the entire area. It is easily accessed by either walking trails or alternatively the iconic Skyline Queenstown Gondola which travels up the mountain daily. In addition to the stunning vistas, the Skyline Queenstown complex offers a range of food and entertainment facilities to enjoy.
For the kids there is the Kiwi bird house just below the gondola. This is a really interesting hour or so for everyone.
TSS Earnslaw, affectionately known as the 'Lady of the Lake' - enjoy a scenic cruise on Lake Wakatipu and see how a vintage steamship operates. Visit Walter Peak High Country Farm and choose from a farm tour (including morning or afternoon tea), BBQ lunch on the lakefront terrace, Heritage excursion (learn about the region's history and enjoy local wine tasting), horse treks or evening dining. The views from the lake make the trip worth it just for that.
