"QUEENSTOWN for a trip on the..." New Zealand Favorite Tip by vickya

New Zealand General: 375 reviews and 341 photos

Favorite thing: QUEENSTOWN for a trip on the Dart River Jet Boats, the trip is about 5 hours . Leaving Queenstown by bus for the trip to the Dart Rive. Put on your life jacket to begin the thrill of a life time. It was
the summer of 1998 February and speeding down the river in just inches of water and close to the banks and going into a spin had me screaming, but it was so thrilling. I will do it again when I go back in the summer of 2000.

Fondest memory: The time spent with my New Zealand family in the Catlins. This is at the very far reaches of the south island. We stayed in the little crib right by the ocean, watching the tide come in and out. Swimming with the dolphins, and enjoying the peace and serenity of the most beautiful place on earth I have ever been. Enjoying the family time pure joy, heaven on earth, found on the South Island of New Zealand.
