I did this walk twice when I was in Queenstown. Once with my 8 year daughter and once by myself. It was really a wonderful and spiritual walk for me. There are some wonderful little surprises along the way and I will do this walk every time I am in Queenstown. It was not easy but doable for almost everyone... More

With nice bars and loads of good food around, we needed some good workout! Decided to walk up the Queenstown hill with teenage kids, was a great walk and a fun to do with teenagers. Be mindful, not an easy one, but highly recommended if in Queenstown for a few days!

We recently climbed Queenstown hill again and found it a pleasant walk to the top. The top is actually higher than the Queenstown gondola level. It is steep in spots and can be slippery near the top in snow but the views are magnificent there. The entire walk from town should take up and back about 2 hours max or... More

Queenstown Hill will take the average person 2 hours round-trip (allowing for some chill time at the top). 2.5hrs most likely with a couple of stops. It is a relatively easy walk with a clearly defined path, at one or two points it may get a bit steep, but nothing so hard that anyone without a disability wouldn't be able... More

When we first came to new Zealand to visit my son I was a bit apprehensive about going to queenstown as it has a reputation of being a young person looking for a thrill kinda place. Never have I been so wrong, it was beautiful friendly and in no way made us feel old not that we are. There's so... More

We had a great time walking to the very top of the Queenstown Hill. It was pretty steep from the beginning and a great workout. There were quite a few people in the beginning, but the further up we got the fewer the people. In fact, on the very top there were just a few folks on our sunny, warm... More

I did this hike on a whim after I arrived on my first day in Queenstown. The nature is beautiful and as you get to the top there are some incredible views. I highly recommend if you enjoy hiking and have a few hours. A word of caution, I over exerted myself coming back down the hill and had pretty... More

I read reviews saying this was an easy hike and I must start by saying I disagree. As a fit person myself, I found Queenstown Hill an exciting challenge. If you had heart conditions or injury, this should be avoidable in my opinion as it is steep in many areas and strenuous. However it was an excellent hike with beautiful... More

The view from the top of Queenstown Hill is fantastic. It is a very steep walking track but if you are able bodied it's definitely a must do. Bring water to drink. It's pretty much a secluded area. Very peaceful. The track starts about a 15 minute walk from Queenstown mall.

This was a moderate to easy hike up to the top of the hill. There were amazing views of the lake, mountains, hang gliders. Definitely worth the hike up to see the city and all the surroundings.
