- ABOUT THE SPOT
Climbing Walls in Queenstown, South Island, Otago New Zealand
The town is surrounded by Lake Wakatipu and the awe-inspiring Southern Alps, with spectacular mountains such as the Remarkables, Cecil Peak and Ben Lomond. Queenstown and the surrounding area was the setting for the legendary films Lord of the Rings and X-Men Origins. Despite the mountainous landscape, the climate is considered to be oceanic, with warm summers and temperatures that can reach up to 30°C/86°F, and cold winters with frequent snowfalls.
For those who prefer indoor to outdoor sports or wish to take advantage of a rainy day and not spend it inside the hotel, indoor wall climbing is the perfect activity. Queenstown Events Center hosts the 12 m/39 ft Rockatipu Climbing Wall, with 11 anchor points. There is a choice of up to 20 climbs for beginner and intermediate climbers, and 12 lead climbs for experts.
Qualified instructors available on spot.
