The Queenstown Lakes District is a popular destination for visitors all from over the world – whether you are an adventure seeker or just looking for somewhere to unwind, we've got something special for everyone!

The Council actively encourages tourist operations that not only share our natural environment with visitors from around the globe, but also treat it with the respect and care it deserves.

How is Tourism managed in this district?

The Council supports Destination Queenstown, Lake Wanaka Tourism and the Arrowtown Promotion Board through a mixture of levies and rates. The Council collects levies from local businesses on behalf of each of these Regional Tourism Organisations, and also contributes 5% of their total funding by way of rates, so all ratepayers contribute towards the international promotion of our district.
