We like Queenstown we just can't really afford it!

Queensbury, New Zealand

Queenstown is another lake-set town surrounded by mountains, the differance here is the plethora of extreme sports one can partake in during your stay. Now, the initial plan was to do a Bungy jump here, they have the largest in New Zealand or maybe a skydive. After a number of days in New Zealand it was decided that the budget could not cope with any of the "optional extra's" on offer. This, however did not stop us from enjoying the place, it was a good opportunity to have a meal out, to catch up with Laundry and shopping, and even send some e-mails at a cost of less than 3 pounds an hour. But our over-riding feeling was that Queenstown is probabgly best enjoyed with a massive budget, failing that, Queenstown would excel during the ski-season, where you can enjoy some amazing skiing and some excellent after-ski, in a town which has everything you need on offer (including the full range of cafe's, fast food chains, and high class resteraunts).

Our next stop after Queenstown was Franz Josef, which is named by the Austrian explorer who was the first to traverse the area on foot, and named the Glacier and thus the township after his king at the time. Another incredible sight in store!
