Easter in Queenstown

The extra long weekend over Easter gives many people a good excuse to visit Queenstown for a short break. The school holidays in New Zealand are also during this time leading to a great family break. This all leads to a very busy weekend for the town with many different events held around the region. For this reason it is advised to book ahead for accommodation and any activities you wish to do to avoid any dissapointment.

So what events are held during this time of year? During the even years The War Birds Over Wanaka is held in Wanaka attracting many aviation fans to the region. This is a big event and is enjoyed by all walks of life.

If you are more the fitness type the Lake Hayes Easter Triathlon which is New Zealand’s longest running triathlon is a great way to get some exercise and see the beautiful scenery at the same time. A mountain bike event called Dirt Masters Ben Lomond Downhill is held in the Ben Lomond Forest above Queenstown. Well worth entering if your a keen mountain biker or just a good watch.

The Autumn colours are really stunning this time of year with the Arrowtown Autumn Festival following on from the Easter holiday. The hills become a beautiful hue of golden colours which attracts artists from all around. So make sure you book that accommodation early so the Easter Bunny knows to find you in Queenstown this Easter.
