Queenstown Begins Preparing for Winter Games

Queenstown and Wanaka are each set to host a part of the 2013 Winter Games, and both of the towns are gearing up for the arrival of winter sports enthusiasts from all over the world in less than twelve months. The organisers are working with Tourism New Zealand to promote the event in the best way possible. Queenstown is a wonderful resort town at any time of the year, and you’ll find loads of activities to do there, whether you want to get out onto Lake Wakatipu or the nearby mountains. The Winter Games taking place there should bring the region plenty of attention. Queenstown is one of the locations that we visit on our New Zealand tours, giving you a chance to discover the town for yourself whilst also exploring everything else that this incredible country has to offer.
