  you can still be a couch potato and enjoy it!

Queenstown in the activity hub of South Island. From here you can Bungee, Handglide, Waterski, Jet boat and hike to your hearts content.

If however you are a couch potato like me, you can still get a great view if you go up in the cable car to the top of the mountain ( you can watch other people paracending and bungee jumping while having a cup of tea)

Queenstown is full of funky shops, restaurants and cafes. You can take a trip out on to the lake, people watch or go clubbing.
Trips also go from there to Milford Sound. Its quite a long way so to avoid an extremely early wake up call stay over in Te Anau the night before and have a lie in!
