Adventure capital of New Zealand, in Queenstown you can bungee jump, white water raft and zipline to your hearts desire. Along with breathtaking scenery the nightlife is pretty decent too… expect world class night clubs and pub crawls. Tons of backpackers pass through here so you can expect to have a lively time! Definitely go and get yourself a Fergberger, the burger that is Queenstown’s worst kept secret. Fergberger’s sweeter sister Fergbaker lives next door where you can get some sweet and savoury baked goods and mummy Mrs Ferg is close by too selling her delicious home made gelato! There’s a the Skyline Gondola too that you can take to see Queenstown and it’s beautiful surroundings from way up high.
