"Here's a round-up of some of our favourite websites with information on Queenstown, New Zealand."
Queenstown Insider


The definitive source for weather info NZ-wide. Check out www.metvuw.com for long-range weather forecasts.

Queensland Lakes District Council

Don't be put off by the horrible interface. The council site has heaps of good info on what's going on behind the scenes.


After visiting this site, you'll see why Fergburger is a Queenstown institution. All hail Ferg!


Planeta was the world's first ecotourism website and specialises in responsible travel. In 2008 there is a regional focus on Otago.

Queenstown Community

Less about advertising products and services and more about building community, it helps people transition into living here and provides an online forum for like-minded folks to meet (see the outdoors community link).

Lakes Weekly Bulletin

The locals' A4 photocopied rag where you can find anything and everything for sale. Editor Scott Stevens has his finger on the pulse of Queenstown.

Local Karma

If you're new in town and planning on staying around for awhile, this loyalty card is worth its weight in gold. Can you really put a dollar value on good karma?

Department of Conservation

The Otago section of the DoC website is chockfull of natural history, heritage and conservation-related information on this amazing and diverse region.
