Queenstown

Queenstown is an exhilarating, year round, alpine resort, perfect for adventurers and leisure seekers alike. Nestled on the shores of Lake Wakatipu, overlooked by the majestic Southern Alps, the town was named because "...it was fit for Queen Victoria." Queenstown is today recognized internationally as New Zealand's premier visitor destination. Queenstown has more than just breathtaking scenery and a diverse range of attractions, it's the people visitors find enchanting. Queenstown enjoys four distinct and captivating seasons.

Coromandel

Hot Water Beach: Some volcanoes develop huge underground reservoirs of superheated water. Over time, this water will escape to the surface, cooling on the way. There are two fissures at Hot Water Beach issuing water as hot as 64˚C (147˚F) at a rate as high as 15 litres/minute. This water contains large amounts of salt (not salt water), calcium, magnesium, potassium, fluorine, bromine, and silica. There are other hot water springs nearby, but the location of these two springs on the beach make them unique.
