The car let us come & go from the mountain on our own time, and we really enjoyed the scenic drive to Glenorchy and the drive out to an animal farm which our 3-year-old loved.

Queenstown itself is easy to walk around but if you want to venture further to Glenorchy or the vineyards at Gibbston Valley or up the ski fields it’s a lot easier with a rental car. You can go at your own pace and time.

Definatley rent a car when you're going to Queenstown. Go up the mountains such as remarkables and coronet peak. Wanika. Try a bike ride from arrowstown to a few wineries and have your bikes picked up after. Ferg. burger. Try to get seafood from a Harbour Fish and cook them your self. Especially the mussels if you're own a budget.

Queenstown office was great to deal with. If renting in the middle of winter with plans to go up one of the mountains, I’d get a 4WD with snow chains. We were there at the beginning of spring, so no snow on the mountain roads, so 2WD was fine.

The Toyota Rav was pretty cool. It drove really well to the point we may look at owning one. Very economical and easy to drive considering we've not driven one before. We drove from Queenstown to Wanaka and just followed the signs and we reached our destination without issues. However, if you take the windy roads or the shortest route, you need to take care as there are a few 15km corners that are not sign posted. We took the longer route back to Queenstown for a day trip, which is easier but finding parking to the Gondolas was a hassle due to the roadworks so we went to the to lakeside for brunch and then back to the gondolas and finally found a park. We are 60+ year olds and doing the Luge was such great fun once we figured how to get in. We found Wanaka enjoyable - in particular Hook Wanaka - to catch Salmon, which is the reason we did this trip.. that is a wonderful place to go even if you're just visiting - the staff there are great - and we caught lots of Salmon - vacumm packed and bought Salmon home to Auckland. Make sure you book a motel like we did that has a fridge freezer large enough - I recommend Aspiring Motel Lodge right next door to New world.. the proprietors will look after you. Also, visit the Wanaka District Club if you are a Cosi Club member - they are very welcoming and have the best Thai Stir Fry - promise..especially if you like Thai hot! If you are a smoker like me, the other place to go is the Speights Ale House Wanaka.. you can order kai and go outside.. also do the wine tours.. go to the local information place in Wanaka and they will sort you out. Also recommend BIG FIG WANAKA.. Awsum kai.. meals suit meat lovers and vegetarians/vegan.. Anyhoo our first time to Queenstown/Wanaka and we plan to go back. We visited a number of places in Wanaka -just about walked the whole town and loved the whole time we were there - by the way only 40kms - Us Aucklanders not used to that - but its great once you get used to it.... It is one of the most beautiful places in Aotearoa in my view

New Zealand a beautiful country, but the public transports are not great, as it is a big country with only 7.5 millions people. Not many people is able to use the public transports. You need a car to see New Zealand's wonderful locations.

If you're heading up the ski fields, I would suggest a 4 wheel drive with chains as this would guarantee you get up there safely. The roads are windy but nicely done.

Very nice driving roads in Queenstown, I particularly enjoyed & recommend drive out to Glenorchy, also, the separate roads up to Coronet Skifield, & Remarkables skifield. Remarkables skifield has a $10 toll-gate which you can pay using an eftpos/credit card, which is well worth it!
