Laugh 'til you cry at the Birdman contest
There's something funny going on by the water. Watch as groups and individuals dress up and launch off a platform into the cold lake waters below. Hilarity is guaranteed!
Join the fun and games
It is possible for festival-goers to participate in many of the events at the Queenstown Winter Festival. Whether you are competitive or not, try your luck on the slopes at one of the many fun-filled races and activities.
The action doesn't stop when the sun goes down. In fact, in many ways it's only just beginning. With live music and DJs playing until the early hours, this is party central.
Make a trip of it
There is so much to see in and around Queenstown so be sure to leave enough time to do some exploring. Fox Glacier is a popular tourist attraction and only a few hours away by car.
Many major airlines fly right to Queenstown Airport (ZQN). From there, it’s a 12 minute drive to the heart of Queenstown.
