Getting there & around Queenstown

Getting to Queenstown is easy whether you decide to fly, drive or catch a coach. Exploring the region once you're in Queenstown is simple with a range of local transport options.


Where can I fly into Queenstown from?

The Queenstown International Airport is very accessible with multiple daily direct flights from all of New Zealand's main centers as well as direct scheduled services from Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne and Coolangatta in Australia. Queenstown International Airport is located just 15 minutes from downtown Queenstown and links to the city center with shuttles, taxi services, buses, and rental cars.

Four major airlines provide scheduled services in and out of Queenstown Airport. Air New Zealand and Jetstar offer both domestic and international flights to and from Queenstown and Qantas and Virgin Australia fly internationally between Queenstown and east coast Australia.

If you're flying from North America, you can fly from Los Angeles, San Francisco, Houston or Vancouver to Auckland and connect to Queenstown. 

Will I need a visa to visit New Zealand?

If you're from a visa waiver country (this includes Australia, United States of America, and the United Kingdom), you will not have to apply for a visa before traveling to New Zealand. For more information on New Zealand visas, click here.
