Trip Planner: South Pacific / New Zealand / South Island / Otago Region / Queenstown / Queenstown Trail
The Queenstown Trail is a cycle and walking trail funded as one of the projects of the New Zealand Cycle Trail (NZCT) system in Otago, New Zealand. It links the towns of Queenstown, Arrowtown, the suburb of Jack's Point and the area of Gibbston. It is at least 110 km in length but is not linear and instead follows the terrain often near rivers and lakes to link key places in a series of tracks that also access public land. In some places it also passes through private land such as working farms and users are encouraged to stay on the trail.To visit Queenstown Trail and get the most from your holiday in Queenstown, create itinerary details personal to you using our Queenstown road trip planning app.
The trail is a joint venture between the Government, Queenstown Lakes District Council and the Queenstown Trails Trust.
