Wine Tasting Tours – Central Otago is known as one of the best wine regions in the country, so if you’re a wine lover, a wine tour with your wedding party is a must! Sample a variety of Pinot Noirs paired with lovely cheeses in Gibbston Valley, or venture a bit further to Bannockburn for wine tasting. Either way, Queenstown offers many different guided wine tours to suit you and your loved ones.
TSS Earnslaw Cruise – There’s no doubt you’ll spot this 108 year old steamship cruising across Lake Wakatipu when you’re in town.

Offering history, entertainment and delicious food all in just a few hours, this is definitely a Queenstown highlight!
Jet Boating – A different way of navigating the water is on an exhilarating jet boat ride. There’s a few different locations and companies available for this, but the most iconic would be the Shotover Jet.
