Frankton is a suburb of Queenstown, New Zealand, located in the south of the Southern Island of New Zealand. This small town is nestled on the shores of the famed Lake Wakatipu, which frames the stunning natural beauty of Frankton. This city was named for Frances Rees, who was the wife of William Gilbert Rees, the first European settler in the region. Rees started the first farm here in 1860, and by 1863 it was an official town. Now, the city is known for its lush green spaces that offer a haven from the bustle of Queenstown.
- Shop at the Remarkables Park Shopping Centre, one of the largest malls in Queenstown, where you can find a collection of popular local retailers alongside specialty shops, as well as many great places to eat.
- Spend the day at the Queenstown Events Centre in Frankton and enjoy swimming and waterslides at the Alpine Aqualand, or participate in a sports game on one of the many fields.
- Stroll over the historic Kawarau Falls Bridge and you will be rewarded with spectacular panoramic views as you pass over the Kawarau River.
