Just a small town, Queenstown is only the 27th largest urban area in New Zealand. So one can not expect any high-rise skyscrapers, and therefore the Queenstown rooftop bars are at a low altitude. All located within walking distance in the small city center, and many with majestic views over the surrounding mountains and Lake Wakatipu.
Situated on the south island of New Zealand, Queenstown might be a small town, but it is very large when it comes to adventure tourism. Both a major center for snow sports, as well as bungy jumping, rafting, sky diving and much more, it attracts lots of visitors every year.
