QUEENSTOWN and THE
Discover this magical playground we call home—Queenstown, New Zealand

With a rapidly growing reputation as the Southern Hemisphere’s premiere bike destination offering a diverse trail network suitable for a wide range of abilities it has, among other things, one of only two gondola assisted MTB parks in the Southern Hemisphere.
The global mountain bike culture recognises Queenstown as an international destination and hotspot for escaping the Northern Hemisphere winter, giving professional riders off season training, photo shoots, film edits, events and an immersion in MTB culture year round. Bikers seek out Queenstown and it’s surrounds for a high quality MTB experience.
The Queenstown trail network and activities are growing faster than the maps, website and guide information can be distributed, linking them and chasing the ones that suit your style of riding is one of the biggest challenges to visiting such a diverse playground.
