Insiders Guide to Queenstown

Jan 2020 | posted by Tourism Portfolio
Hosted by Rob, Ellen & the amazing team HQNZ, Adam from the Tourism Portfolio team hosted a group of happy corporate event planners in Queenstown in late 2019.

The team at HQNZ had a challenging week with a number of changes to the program due to the highest rainfall the region had seen in almost 20 years, but still managed to pull together an amazing four day program for our famil-goers.
After a seamless flight with Air New Zealand the group arrived at Queenstown Airport where they were met by the HQNZ team and quickly whisked away on a Jetboat to see the sites of Queenstown – what a way to start the trip! The fun didn't stop there though; the group then went on a site inspection of the Heritage (with cocktails & lobster of course) before jumping in a gondola to head up to Skyline where they were treated to a casual buffet dinner and a few even had a turn at the luge racing.
Heli flights overs the stunning landscapes of Queenstown, exploring the mountainside peaks in 4WD's, wine tasting at Gibbston Valley, a Steam Boat cruise over to Walter Peak Farm, Yoga at Sunrise and of course – Bungee Jumping at the Kawarau Bungee Centre – this trip had it all!
The group were treated to overnight accommodation in three of Queenstown's most beautiful hotels; Heritage Queenstown, Hilton Queenstown Resort & Spa and Millbrook Resort – we can't thank them enough for their generous hospitality.

But don't take our word for it, here's what our guests had to say!

'Fantastic group of people, well organised, amazing scenery but most all with the weather conditions showed me how much flexibility and how many unique options there are for groups of all sizes. Thank you'

'Meeting the amazing team from HQNZ! I've never had such an amazing experience, Rob & Ellen - Wonderful hosts! I couldn't speak more highly of you and your team - I can see us all having a great relationship in the years to come and there isn't a location in the world I speak more highly of!'

'Queenstown is such an amazing place - I have so many photos on my phone, I don't know which ones to post!'
