Posted on September 17, 2012


Our planet is filled with natural splendor and man-made marvels.  As the leading publisher of maps of every area in the US and worldwide, we at MarketMAPS want to celebrate our world.  We continue our series of necessary visits with a stop over in Queenstown, New Zealand: an adrenaline junkie’s paradise.  Mark this location on your map!

Can one city really have it all?  Skydiving, white-water rafting, bungee-jumping, hang gliding, skiing; you can do all these things in Queenstown.  And, its beautiful lakes and mountains only compliment the activities you can find in this quaint New Zealand city.

Queenstown was first established by European settlers in the 1860’s.  Many stories have circulated regarding how the city’s name came about.  But one thing is certain: Queenstown is fit for a Queen.  The city is built around an inlet called QueenstownBay on LakeWakatipu.  It has spectacular views of nearby mountains such as The Remarkables, CecilPeak, and WalterPeak.

Queenstown is a world-renowned tourist destination.  A coal fired steamship that is nearly 100 years old, called the TSS Earnslaw, provides tourist trips on the lake.  Adrenaline junkies will find no shortage of things to do in this beautiful landscape.  Bungee-jumping and skydiving are both popular activities, as are snowboarding and skiing in the nearby mountains during the winter seasons.  Queenstown is also locally famous for being New Zealand’s wine and cuisine center.  So if you want to skydive in the morning, ski in the afternoon, and sip on wine at night, Queenstown is the place for you.

Queenstown, New Zealand is a beautiful stop on any world trip.  If you need help marking your journeys and planning your trips, consult MarketMAPS.  We provide wall maps, map books, and digital maps of any area in the USA and the world.  Whether it is a map of Queenstown, New Zealand, a map of the US, or of the world, MarketMAPS can help you find the map that’s just right for you.
