2. Explore the Queenstown Gardens
Take some time out from the typical Queenstown action with a sedate stroll through these botanical gardens. Various trails meander through native New Zealand flora and fauna and other exotic plants. It also provides spectacular views of the surrounding Remarkables Range and Lake Wakatipu. For a longer walk, take the 1.5 hour Frankton Arm Walkway from the gardens to the Frankton Reserve. This path also makes for a pleasant bike ride.
