When you're visiting a city for the first time, there's nothing better than getting tips from a local beyond the usual guide book suggestions!
We asked The Remarkables ski instructor Adie Lawrence for her insider scoop on Queenstown.
Flame Bar and Grill – This place does the best ribs in town, by far. If you’re in the mood for hot chocolate, then Patagonia Chocolates is a fantastic spot. It has amazing ice cream, too.
Rhino’s Ski Shack – For some après-ski, this is an awesome little bar with a great alpine feel. It’s just off Cow Lane. Or try Harry’s Pool Bar for a few pool games and delicious pizza.
The Remarkables – From learning to ski or snowboard to shredding down the chutes or making a snowman, head on up to The Remarkables and have fun in the snow.
Arrowtown – If you have a day off skiing, Arrowtown is worth a day trip. Go for a walk along Arrow River and through the quaint main street; there are awesome shops and great food.
Insider info – Make time to go for a walk around the Queenstown Gardens to take in the scenery. Grab a Frisbee from town and have a go at the Frisbee golf course up there.
