Your first day mainly consists of getting settled in and then exploring the downtown streets of Queenstown, so take the time to get to know the city and walk everywhere.
The best way to take in the landscape around Glenorchy is either on foot or by car. It’s by horseback, and that’s why the early morning start is needed.

Take your time, gather your bags, check out, and head into downtown. The only challenge you’ll have is that you’re going to be travelling around with your bags.
Visit Blue Pools, Thunder Creek Falls, Ship Creek, try whitebait in Haast. Stay at the Fox Josef Top 10 Holiday Park cabin.
