    Car Hire Queenstown

    Queenstown Car HireA city like Queenstown has a lot to offer, so it's understandable that this town is loved by many travellers. Get a car hire and discover the beautiful Lake Wakatipu and its stunning nature. Maybe you like to go hiking or you're on location for a ski trip. Whatever it is, Queenstown can make it happen.

    Queenstown came to life during the 1860's gold rush. The town never over-developed once the miners left, so it still retains a unique small town feeling even though there are plenty of conveniences. If you are intrigued by the gold rush, be sure to visit the Gold Fields Mining Centre in Queenstown. Here you will get a feeling of life during the gold rush. You also get the chance to awaken your inner miner and pan for gold in the nearby creek.

    They say 'Winter is coming,' and in Queenstown, this means that the ski season has kicked off. With four different ski resorts surrounding the city, a car hire is easy and convenient in getting from one amazing slope to the other. When summer melts the snow at the bottom of the hills, it's time to get on the lake. Get your fishing gear out, or climb on a boat - all whilst working on your tan.
