Enjoy a Gourmet Taste of Queenstown

With Queenstown already well regarded as the adventure capital of the world, foodies are flocking for not only a taste of the bounty of local artisan produce grown and crafted in the Central Otago region, but some adrenaline pumping action too!

Summer represents an array of activities available in Queenstown. From relaxed kayaking to spine tingling jet boating on the Dart River to arguably one of New Zealand’s best drives out to Lord of the Rings country – Glenorchy. There is also the daring 109 metre canyon swing; white-water rafting down the mighty Shotover River or the bungy that started it all – AJ Hackett at Kawarau.

And while it is easy to get caught up in daredevil antics Queenstown has to offer, incorporate some gourmet culture into your activities too.
