The holiday destination of Queenstown is a New Zealand success story. The lakeside town is recognized as one of the world’s top alpine resorts and is rapidly growing into the status of a city. It was named ‘Queenstown’ because the early European arrivals to the district decided it was a place ‘fit for Queen Victoria’.
