Day 3

On arrival at Auckland Airport you will be met by PerryGolf personnel who will assist you with your luggage and transfer to your connecting flight to Queenstown. Upon arrival, collect rental vehicle and journey to your chosen hotel (15 minutes).

Welcome to Queenstown. Treasured for its magnificent scenery, adventure opportunities and luxury lifestyle. Long summer days blonde the tussocks, throwing the hills open to mountain bikers and hikers. The brilliant reds and golds of autumn colour the trees, inspiring photographers and golfers alike. In winter, snow transforms the region into a remarkable alpine playground for skiers and snowboarders. Spring brings the spark of fresh green to the landscape, a time to celebrate life with a cruise on the lake or an invigorating bungy jump. In any season, you can count on stylish accommodation, designer shopping and marvellous cuisine experiences. Queenstown's compact downtown area is a cosmopolitan hub that's relaxed during the day and huge fun at night.
