Adventure Experiences for Kids in Queenstown, NZ- A Rejuvenating Alpine Playground

A gorgeous alpine playground sporting the world's most spectacular backdrops for adrenaline-fuelled escapades, Queenstown is the ideal destination for kids and grown-ups alike. Here are some must-try youthful adventures in this festive winter wonderland.


Myth: Queensland isn't kid-centric

This magical ski-perfect southern haven is iconic for its sensational experiences for every brand of wanderlust, and minors are no exception! From trampoline parks affording limitless gymnastics and thrilling VR-powered Escape Rooms to lakeside farm tours and exhilarating ice hockey games, there's plenty to fill up your Queensland family itinerary.


A nature-kissed racetrack

Whizzing you 450m metres high in 5 minutes, the Skyline Gondola will place you on Bob's Peak, where a cloudless day yields dazzling views of the picturesque fairytale town and its jewel-toned lake guarded by The Remarkables snow-capped mountain range. You can zoom 800 metres downhill in purpose-built carts at Skyline Luge with its tailor-made tracks to exhilarate all ages with all the twists, dippers, and tunnels you could desire!


Dreamy valley ziplining

For a (literally) breathtaking medley of jaw-dropping Gibbston Valley vistas and an adrenaline-rich speed of 60 kph, the Kawarau Zipride is your family-oriented solution, allowing children from eight years of age to ride tandem with adults, while over fourteen-year-olds can ride solo.


Kiwi Birdlife Park

A hidden gem in Queenstown's mesmerising inner-city enclaves, you and your kids can enjoy a beautiful intimate edutainment escape in harmonious 5-acre parkland with over 100 species of native birds and reptiles.


Hitting the stunning slopes

While jet-spinning up the Dart River and picnicking by forest-clad chasms are great starts to enjoying Queensland's dramatically lovely wilderness, if you're a winter traveller, you can't leave without trying out this region's chief active diversion-skiing! There are plenty of ski fields suitable for the entire family, such as The Remarkables and Coronet Peak, which are equipped with top-notch gear, ski schools, kids clubs, and snow sports training centres. If you're hunting for the best ski resort in Queenstown with avant-garde amenities for character-enriching productivity, venture no further than Oaks Queenstown Club Suites.


Explore scenic farms

For a more serene and intimate interaction with the enchanting Queenstown precincts, hop on board the historic coal-powered TSS Earnslaw and cruise along the postcard-perfect Lake Wakatipu, stopping at the Walter Peak High Country Farm. Here, your kids have free reign to be as curious and free-spirited as they please, from feeding friendly buffalos and observing the shearing process to an amphitheatre show put on by farmers and their smart sheepdogs. Afternoon tea is a delicious affair of homemade scones, sandwiches, cakes, and more!


Stimulating games galore

If indoor fun is more your style, Queenstown doesn't disappoint. From Odyssey Sensory Maze with its illusory zones to navigate as a family to Thrillzone with its myriad of AI-powered challenges, there is no shortage of state-of-the-art activities to keep everyone on their toes.


Take on the Ice Arena

After roaming through the storybook Queenstown gardens and shopping for handcrafted souvenirs at its artsy markets, try your luck with ice-skating at Queenstown Ice Arena. A fun and interactive learning experience is assured for the kids, who will be guided through the basic techniques and receive a badge as they level up on different skills.
