Autumn: 1 March - 31 May
Autumn is one of the most picturesque times of year to visit Queenstown and enjoy its spectacular lake and alpine scenery.  The vivid change of seasons, from summer into autumn, transforms the world-renowned landscapes into a stunning palette of reds, oranges and golds.

Daytime temperatures range between 12-25°C (53°F – 77°F), while mornings and evenings can be cooler.  The wide selection of things to do, temperate weather and friendly people all combine to make Queenstown one of New Zealand’s favourite holiday spots.

Bright sunny days provide the perfect opportunity to get outdoors and take part in the many local adventure activities, hiking and biking trails, and world-class golf courses.  Dining al fresco is popular at wineries, cafes, bars and restaurants, meanwhile art galleries, heritage trails and events of all types add to the adventure on offer.

Adventure comes in all shapes and sizes in Queenstown from giant swings, jet boats, paragliding to luging, horse riding and helicopter tours. Add to that six immaculate golf courses, boutique wineries, a diverse network or walking and biking tracks and you start to realise the possibilities are endless.
