Walking Trail

So many opportunities for walks and hikes in and around town. A lovely, easy option is to stroll around Queenstown Gardens, then carry on along the lake edge to the Frankton Walkway and out to Frankton and The Boat Shed Cafe. You can then walk or take the bus back to town.

Once you’ve explored the ones below, try one of the hikes further afield such as around Arrowtown or in Mt Aspiring National Park.

Ben Lomond Track

Queenstown Gardens
