Steamer Wharf

Located on the edge of the scenic Lake Wakatipu in Queenstown, the Steamer Wharf is a area bustling with energy. Visitors come to play in the water, ride an original steamboat, and explore the surrounding areas that are rich with scenic farmland, excellent alpine views, and golf courses. The Queenstown Golf Course is located across from Queenstown Gardens and is a popular spot for skilled golfers. The Ben Lomand Scenic Reserve is only a few kilometres north of the Steamer Wharf, and is a popular location for hikers and naturalists, or families looking for a picnic spot.

  • Enjoy a remarkable experience by taking the TSS Earnslaw Steamship Cruise from Steamer Wharf and tour the entire ship, including its massive engines, whilst snacking on tasty refreshments.
  • Visit Queenstown's working Walter Peak High Country Farm on Lake Wakatipu, to enjoy a delicious lunch, go for a tour, and see a sheep shearing demonstration.
  • Visitors to New Zealand can enjoy a round of golf at the city's two impeccable courses at the Queenstown and Millbrook Golf Courses.

The Queenstown International Airport is located at the tip of Lake Wakatipu, conveniently close to the Steamer Wharf. In addition to the airport, Queenstown features an excellent public transportation system that includes the Connectabus system that provides routes throughout the city. For those who prefer private transportation, the airport offers a wide selection of rental car agencies to choose from, and there are numerous taxis for hire. For an inexpensive and efficient ride, jump on Connectabus number 11 from the airport and connect with number 9 to arrive at the Steamer Wharf.
