Favorite thing: My fiance loved Queenstown because there was so much to do there. He is right of course and if you have the money the sky is the limit. I must admit I was expecting a larger city and was surprised about the lack of normal shopping available. Sure there were lots of tourist shops and even some up market ones but when it came to boring old groceries we didn't discover the Remarkables shopping centre past the airport for a while. I think it would really be busy in the ski season and the town would have a better feel than in Summer when it was pretty relaxed.
Fondest memory: My favourite part of Queenstown is that it is so close to everything. We didn't see half of the nearby areas. Lake Wakatipu is pretty impressive in size. We loved watching the planes take off and just get over the mountains.
