Celebrating Christmas in Queenstown certainly is something special. The hot weather and long days alongside an abundance of activities ensures that everyone, from the kids to the in-laws, are kept happy and entertained during the festive season.
The township of Queenstown is a hive of activity in the days leading up to Christmas. Plenty of decorations line the street to keep things looking and feeling festive, and the array of boutiques and markets are perfect for that last minute gift shopping. If the shopping doesn't quite tickle your fancy, you can avoid the commotion of town altogether and head out on an adventure; take your pick from kayaking, jet boating, rafting through the Skippers Canyon and many many more.
For those of you who plan to steer clear of the kitchen stress that often comes with preparing a Christmas feast, there are plenty of restaurants in downtown Queenstown that are open and offering delicious 3 course set menus for Christmas Day. A popular favourite is the Stratosfare Restaurant at Skyline. Enjoying either a sumptuous lunch or dinner, accompanied by live music with an incredible vista overlooking Queenstown, is something not to miss.
From the lakeside beach to the rolling hills and mountains, the Queenstown landscape is packed with perfect secret spots to spend the day. If you feel more like getting out and about in nature, pack a picnic and your sunhat and set out to enjoy time with your loved ones in a remarkable setting. Feast, play games and be merry.
