    Queenstown Gardens

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Queenstown Botanical Gardens are located next to the CBD on a headland jutting out into Lake Wakatipu. As with gardens world wide they are a popular place to enjoy a picnic lunch, a leisurely stroll or some more energetic forms of exercise.

    They are open each day and are pedestrian only. There is plenty of car parking available.

    Memorials in the Gardens

    by al2401 Updated Jul 7, 2012

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    As well as a beautiful display of trees and flowers the Queestown Gardens is the home to a variety of memorials.

    The largest is to Antarctic explorer Robert Falcon Scott - or 'Scott of the Antarctic'. Scott reached the South Pole only to discover that he had been beaten by the Norwegian explorer Amundsen. He and all of his party perished before reaching base camp.

    The memorial is a large boulder and hold plaques of dedication and the words of his last message.

    Other memorials in the gardens are dedicated to Everest guide Andy Harris and conqueror of K2 Bruce Grant.

    Queenstown Gardens

    These botanic gardens jut out on a little pennisula on the southside of town.

    A beautiful setting where many a wine and food festival is held, you can stroll through the majestic trees, beautiful rose gardens and take in the views of Queenstown, the Remarkables and Lake Wakatipu.

    There are tennis courts, bowling green and croquet green.

    What better way to grab a bite to eat whilst wandering around Queenstown.
    Aggy's Shack has great fish & chips and other seafood. We grabbed a quick bite before heading off to walk around Queenstown Gardens.
