Accommodation (monthly)

by stephwigz

Hi there

My boyfriend and I are planning on moving to Q-Town for a couple of months during the ski season. I've been doing a bit of research and hear that it's pretty hard to find accommodation in the town itself during this time and I was wondering if anyone knew of the surrounding areas close by that might be a little easier to find a place to live in, but are still reasonably accessible to Queenstown itself? We're not looking for anything remotely 5-star (quite the opposite) as we'd just be living, working and boarding when we can - nothing major. Is it likely that our only options would be hostel-type places, as we're sort of after something with a little more privacy?

Also if anyone has any good leads on places to stay or agencies that do short term rental (two to three months), that would be great!

Thanks

Steph

Hi, try that link to a site called trade me, if you are a NZ'er sorry if this sounds familiar, but if you are not, it is NZ's ebay!!
They have rent for rooms in Frankton - 5min drive to Q-town and Fernhill - just up the hill, maybe a 30min walk/2 min drive.
I would suggest getting onto something early, ppl find it hard later on but not too horrible at the very start of (or even before) the season.
Good luck

Accommodation (monthly)

Yep I agree with what's been said. I was in QTown last week and talking to some foreigners working there. They said it's easy to get accommodation during the summer season, they had rooms available in their house even. But when Ski season hits they pretty much get snapped up. So the earlier you can get there the more chance you have of somewhere close.
I was staying at Fernhill and there is a bus that services that area regularly.
It may even be worth securing a place a couple of weeks before you go, send the money over, and jump the gun if you can.

Travel Tips for Queenstown

Steamer Wharf: Restaurants, Bars, Casino

by Kakapo2

This part of the lakeside has been updated to a kind of entertainment centre, with some restaurants, bars, a small casino, and the office and pier of the TSS Earnslaw.

As this area which borders the Boardwalk is a strictly pedestrian area, it is very nice to sit there outdoors and enjoy a pleasant evening.

The Boardwalk Restaurant is famous for its wonderful seafood dishes. Frasers Bar & Grill is quite pleasant. Also the Minus 5° Ice Bar and the Yacht Club are located there. You get Italian fare at Luciano’s. Finz Down Under is also specialised in seafood. The Wai Waterfront Restaurants serves NZ fare. The Juice Stop completes the places you can enjoy.

Goldfields Mining Centre

by bryINpoland

Who doesn’t love a ghost town? When gold was struck in the 1860s in New Zealand, the gold rush was on! Like any gold rush, prospectors from all over the world flooded into New Zealand and established dozens of small self contained settlements. Located just outside of Cromwell, along the Kawarau River, in Kawarau Gorge is one of the best preserved examples of one of these settlements.

Within the settlement you can visit the dams and tunnels, the old stables, the stamper battery and the stone cottages of Chinatown. (Stone cottages that housed the Chinese miners who played a big role in New Zealand’s gold mining history)

***Most of the ghost town can still be seen from the highway if you don’t have time to stop in.

Check out St Petes

by cnango

The Anglican Church, St Peters in Wakatipu was established in 1863 by the first Queenstown settler, William Gilbert Rees. He also had a sheep station located on the shores of Wakatipu. Rees and a few of his workers attended the services held in the original small wooden church. The present day stone church was built in 1932.Because of its beautiful architecture and interior ."St Petes" (as the locals say) is often used for weddings. We discovered this beautiful stone church while walking around Queenstown. I just had to stop and take pictures for a VT tip ; )

The Colonel's Homestead

by grets about Walter Peak

Dinner is in the very grand homestead, with polished mahogony tables and chairs and a gentleman playing the grand piano.

Dinner is a very spicy soup to start, followed by the ubiquitous buffet. Very pleasant food, but I am not a great lover of buffets.
