Have you heard of the Queenstown Hill Time Walk?
If you are looking for a free, exhilarating activity in Queenstown, then this walk should be on your short list.
Queenstown and the surrounding area offers some of the most spectacular scenery in the country.
The Queenstown Hill Time Walk stretches some five hundred metres through the forest and takes you to the summit of Te Tapu-nui, which translates to "the mountain of intense sacredness".
Your walk will take you to the "Basket of Dreams" sculpture, together with several information plaques pointing out various features of the region.
The walk to the summit is well worth it, and the views are breathtaking.
For a break before descending, take a snack to enjoy beside the lake near the summit. How serene is that!
The walk starts close to the city centre at a car park in Belfast Terrace.
The track is managed by the Queenstown Lakes District Council and parts of the track traverse private land.
