Any weekday markets in Queenstown

by chriztina

Does anyone know the EXACT LOCATION of markets in Queenstown? I read that there are markets at the Arts Centre in Christchurch, Cathedral Square and others.

Do they operate in the week or only on weekends? What do they sell? Market produce or something more? Thanks.

dont know about Queenstown, but the Christchurch markets in Cathedral Square operate every day, and the Arts Centre market mostly at the weekend (might be more frequent in the summer)http://www.artscentre.org.nz/directory/Weekend-Market
Mostly arts and crafts at these markets, but food and produce at Riccarton Racecourse (Sundays) Deans Bush Saturdays http://www.canterburyfarmersmarket.co.nz/
Queenstown = http://www.queenstown-nz.co.nz/information/product/?product=queenstown-arts-and-crafts-market

Re: Any weekday markets in Queenstown

Thanks. I checked the Queenstown web site and it seems that there's only one Saturday market. Do you know if there are any other markets in Queenstown that open on weekdays?

nothing that I know of...maybe check with the tourist info centre ?

I have never seen an arts and crafts market in Queenstown and have been there many times. The best place for really good crafts products during the week are the shops at the Christchurch Arts Centre. I have seen a very nice weekend market in Ashburton, selling quirky arty stuff - but probably you will not pass there.

Travel Tips for Queenstown

How to save a little while in Queenstown

by batgirl1001

Stuff at Queenstown tend to be a litte more pricier than in many places around South Island. And we all know why.

So if you are staying at a service apartment, do consider buying your groceries at Cromwell, a town just outside 15-20 mins away.

Also restraurants are expensive too if you are on a budget unless you happen to want the cheap kebab deli or McDonalds all the time.

Groceries are cheaper in Cromwell by about 10%-20% and so is the petrol. So fill up on gas before entering Queenstown.

Julien Bourdeau, the Pioneer of Skippers Canyon

by Kakapo2

-

At the turn-off from the Coronet Peak Road to Skippers Canyon you will see the figure of a man, next to the first warning sign about how dangerous Skippers Road is.

This figure depicts Julien Bourdeau, a French Canadian who was a pioneer of the region. He was a packer and served the remote gold diggers communities of Maori Point, Skippers and Bullendale as a publican, mailman, farmer and General Store keeper. His return trips between Queenstown and those places took him two days.

Twice weekly he carried passengers and supplies with his horses Dobbin and Darkie.

He did the job for 50 years until he died in 1916, aged 87. He is buried at the old Skippers Cemetery. His orbituary says he died in the traces of his horse-drawn cart of exhaustion and old age.

In the Press newspaper of 22 November 2008 I read about an amusing long-standing legend about Julien Bourdeau. It says that several months after he died – and remember he died at the age of 87 – the Mayor of Queenstown received a letter from Bourdeau’s parents in Canada, wondering why their son had not written for quite a while…

360 degree turns

by grets

The driver comes within millimetres of the canyon walls - in fact he touches it twice - at great speed in just inches of water. 360 degree turns, bouncing in our own wake. Got very wet!

The 360 degree turns are best, and some of the close shaves with the rock. It does occur to me that even the best rally drievrs make errors of judgement at times.

Sunshine Bay

by dmirebella

An approx 1/2 hr walk away from Lake Wakatipu brings to a nice somewhat enclosed area known as Sunshine Bay .

The walk itself (depending on the weather and the physical well being of the walker ;-)) is a great - not too challenging but can get somewhat tricky as it does have a couple of hills to climb ...

Milford Sound

by robertgaz

Milford Sound is a stunning body of still dark waters from which rise forest covered sheer cliffs to a height of up to 1,692 metres.

The township itself is fairly unimpressive despite the grandeur which surrounds it. There's not much to it except for a cruise terminal and carpark.

It has minimal choice of accommodation and very few restaurants, so most tourists tend to be day visitors.

Milford Sound is either a very long road trip or avery scenic half hour flight from Queenstown.
