Half the fun in Queenstown is just hanging out. In general, everyone is on holiday in a gorgeous natural environment and happily having fun. There are interesting things to do right at hand. Stroll in the Gardens, ride the Skyline Gondola or go for a lake cruise on the TSS Earnslaw.
Queenstown Arts ‘n Crafts Market is held regularly in Earnslaw Park (by Steamer Wharf) on Saturday mornings. Remarkables Market, more of a locals ‘fresh produce and eating’ market, is also held Saturday mornings at Frankton’s Remarkables Park, out near the airport.
