Queenstown - New Zealand's busiest tourist town.

Scenic, compact, active. That's Queenstown. Paragliding, Sky Diving, Mountain Biking, Hiking, Jet Boating, and much more.

After arriving, we took a ride on the Shotover River in a Jet Boat. The jet engines were invented in New Zealand. Draft of the boat is only 10 cm. They go FAST, 85 km/hr downstream and 80 km/hr up. Can "spin" 360 degrees. Spectacular gorge scenery and a thrilling ride. Have a look at the video on their home page.
