The Neighborhood

To follow is a ‘snapshot’ of just some of the things you can enjoy during your stay at Shimmerlake Luxury Home.

Kelvin Heights


As one of the most prestigious suburbs in New Zealand, Kelvin Heights is well served by shops and public transport and is just a few minutes’ drive from Frankton Airport. Popular activities in the area include picnics, walking (part of the Queenstown Trail passes through), cycling and golf.

Spectacular sights


Is Queenstown the most beautiful place on Earth? It just may be. Honestly, the sight of The Remarkables running along the southern-most arm of New Zealand’s longest lake, Lake Wakatipu, is something else — particular when swathed with snow during ski season.



Places to see & things to do


Queenstown offers so much to enjoy. Take your pick:

Walk to Ben Lomond Summit to experience breath-taking views and native beech forest.

Mountain biking

There are plenty of biking trails to choose from in Queenstown such as Kelvin Heights, Frankton Trail and 12-Mile Delta. Also, check out Queenstown Bike Park.




Golf courses

Is golf your thing? Visit Millbrook Resort, Queenstown Golf Course, Jack’s Point or jeweller Michael Hill’s famous Hills on the outskirts of Arrowtown.




Fishing

Fly fishing is big in Queenstown. And there is an abundance of lakes and rivers to cast your rod. Fish on your own or take a tour. For a special treat, go heli-fishing.




Ski fields

Mention Queenstown and most people think of skiing. That’s because there is so much great skiing to enjoy. Check out Coronet Peak, The Remarkables, Cardrona and Treble Cone.
