Photo Diaries: Queenstown, New Zealand

It’s no secret that Queenstown and I have a little love affair going on. It’s only a hop skip and a jump (or a three hour plane ride) from my home town of Brisbane and somewhere I constantly find myself longing to return to.

Long days on the ski fields, hot chocolate rugged up in my favourite winter coat and sitting back relaxing while taking in the breathtaking view as far as the eye can see from next to a toasty fireplace, this place holds nothing but fond memories for me.

There is literally something for everyone in this worldly town. Queenstown is a year round destination regardless of wether you want fun in the sun in the warmer months or a winter wonderland when the cooler months come calling.

It’s a food and wine lover’s paradise, an adrenalin junkies dream come true and a family paradise where you won’t catch anyone complaining “I’m Bored”.

Surrounded on every side by stunning, majestic (slightly misty some might say) mountains and set on the edge of the gorgeous Lake Wakatipu, it’s the perfect destination for your next holiday.

If you get the chance, pay this beautiful town a visit. There is no doubt in my mind that Queenstown will win your heart just like it did mine. If you’ve already been and fallen in love as well share your love affair with me in the comments. Xx Flick
