Just a short 3 hour direct flight from Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and the Gold Coast, or alternatively you can connect daily from Auckland, Wellington or Christchurch.Air New Zealand, Qantas, Virgin and Jetstar all fly to and from Queenstown Airport.

Many guests choose to fly directly into Queenstown, although it is also popular to include Queenstown as part of a wider itinerary of the South Island and/or New Zealand as a whole.
