Top Ten Things to do in Queenstown

We visited Queenstown and Wanaka in New Zealand’s Southern Alps in the school holidays. I had heard about how beautiful Queenstown was but it is even better when you see it in person. Talk about stunning, spectacular, jaw-dropping and gorgeous … it is all of the above and them some. We stayed at the Rees in Queenstown and every morning and evening, braved the cold air on the balcony to watch the sun colour in the rocks and snow of The Remarkables, the aptly named mountain range to the west. Just beautiful.

There is a ridiculous amount of things to do with four ski resorts and every activity known to mankind. We just did a few of them and here is our top ten.

1. Ski, ski and ski some more. We skied Coronet Peak, The Remarkables, Cardrona and Treble Cone. Every one is different.
a. Coronet Peak is just twenty minutes from Queenstown and is an easy drive. It has night skiing Friday and Saturday nights. Favourite run – M1.
b. The Remarkables is sensational for freestylers with plenty of terrain park adventure on offer. Favourite run – Water Race.
c. Cardrona has incredible facilities for children of all ages and abilities and is really picturesque. Lovely wide, groomed runs are the order of the day plus great backcountry options. Favourite run – Gin and Raspberry.
d. Don’t let people tell you Treble Cone is only good for experts. We’re not experts and we loved it. Wonderful terrain, plenty of blue runs and black runs to appease even the best of the best skiers. Favourite run – South Ridge or Raffills Run.

2. Visit Cardrona Adventure Park and let the kids drive the ‘school bully’ – a massive monster truck. Afterwards, do a tour on quad bikes. We even got to walk on a frozen lake. Sensational fun!

3. If it’s raining or you want a break from action, visit Puzzling World in Wanaka. It has a two storey maze that keeps you going, amazing puzzles inside plus many weird and wonderful things that are … puzzling! Great for all ages.

4. Go for a jet boat ride with Wanaka River Journeys. We took off in gloomy weather and blasted up river, the jet boat shooting through impossibly shallow water and narrow gaps. The sun came out and we gaped at the scenery. Mt Aspiring is inspiring. Hang on when Brent throws a 360!

5. Go up the Skyline Gondola in Queenstown for more brilliant views, a few goes on the two luge tracks and maybe for a bungy jump off The Ledge. You can even do a tandem hang glide if you’re brave. We weren’t.

6. Eat out in Queenstown. So many good places with roaring fires, great meals for kids and fantastic ambience. The Cow (also in Wanaka) has incredible pizzas and garlic bread while Joe’s Garage is so cool even the NZ Prime Minister eats there. How do I know that? We saw him there. The bacon and egg rolls – called “Sweeties” are divine, and so is the coffee.

7. Stop in at the Cardrona Hotel after your day skiing at Cardrona. It’s historic, quaint, warm and has great food. See if you can find the cat!

8. After you ski at Coronet Peak, book in for a hot spa at Onsen Hot Pools. We all jumped in the tub, hit the button and the glass ceiling rolled back, revealing beautiful views over the river. Great for soothing sore legs!

9. Drive over the Crown Range if the road is open and you are going to Cardrona. Always take chains with you in this part of the world.

10. Visit Arrowtown, charming old town with plenty of history and brilliant for photography.

Stay: The Rees in Queenstown – luxurious apartments with all the mod cons and those views.
Edgewater Resort in Wanaka – fantastic fun for families. The outdoor trampoline was first stop for the kids after a day’s skiing, even though it was freezing outside. The restaurant was brilliant.

Part of the Yanchep Sun City complex, Two Tocks Marina is a recognised anchorage for Western Australia's commercial fishing and crayfishing industry which operates between November and June.
For a time in the 1970s it looked like Yanchep would become one of Australia¹s premier tourist attractions. It was to be the model of a modern and sophisticated tourist centre where the rich and the not-so-rich would mix and mingle. The Sun City Marina at Two Rocks, 6 km north of Yanchep, would become the largest marina in Australia and it would become the launching pad for the Bond attempts on the America's Cup. The golf course, to be called St Andrews, would be of international standing. Yanchep-Sun City would become the central attraction on the Western Australian coast.
Today Yanchep is one of the most rapidly developing resort towns in Western Australia. Located only 47 km north of Perth, it is a little piece of high profile tourism on a coast noted for its wonderfully unpretentious, low key developments.
Today Yanchep is a popular holiday resort town boasting two golf courses (one 18-hole and one 9-hole), horse and camel riding and some truly outstanding beaches.

Do not miss the Fremantle Markets (open Friday - Sunday) for a huge range of arts, crafts, clothes and fruit and veg.
Fremantle is rich in maritime history. The Maritime Museum, which overlooks the beautiful Esplanade Park, exhibits a section of the Batavia, the famous ship wrecked off the coast in 1629. The Museum also displays a unique collection of historical maritime objects
"Freo" (as it is affectionately referred to by West Australians) is also famous for its penal history. The Roundhouse, which was built in 1831 and is Western Australia's oldest public building was originally a jail. Visitors are welcome to inspect the tiny cells then escape to the beautiful grassy picnic spot above. The Fremantle Museum and Arts Center was once a mental asylum for women.
Just down the road from the Arts Center is the old Fremantle Jail, which was built by convict labour. Tours of the jail provide an interesting and sometimes spine-tingling insight into West Australian history. (The night tour is very spine-tingling).
In more recent history, Fremantle was the site of Australia's defence of the America's Cup in 1987. The exuberant nautical atmosphere remains in the fishing boat harbour, over 10 years after the unsuccessful bid to retain the Cup.
If you take a lazy stroll through the west end of Fremantle you'll find dozens of examples of Victorian architecture in the beautifully restored heritage buildings. Many of the buildings are now classified by the National Trust.
Fremantle is "it" for culinary diversity. Naturally, there are dozens of Italian and Greek Restaurants in the town that is sometimes called "Little Italy." However, you will also find Indian, Japanese, Thai, Turkish, Chinese and good old Aussie restaurants, to name a few. Regardless of your budget and tastes, you will find a restaurant in Fremantle with fabulous food and service. Go to our restaurant guide to chose the place for tonight !
West Australians also love the coffee culture. There are many cafes in Fremantle with seating outside, so you can sit back, put on your sunglasses, sip your coffee and watch the cosmopolitan world of Freo go by. For the perfect, smooth coffee, you cannot go past Gino's, which is located on South Terrace, otherwise known as "the cappuccino strip" for obvious reasons.
You cannot visit Fremantle without indulging in refreshment of the cold, frothy, amber kind! The pubs in Fremantle are a must at the end of a long day sight seeing. The Sail and Anchor brews its own ales, and the staff are happy to provide a few samples. This historical pub is packed with character and has everything from chesterfields in front of the fire, to a beer garden out the back. Then cross the street and visit the Norfolk. Its shady limestone courtyard is renowned for its laid back Sunday session. Have a look at our Pubs page for more great Fremantle Pubs.

Opened to the public in 1995, the Armadale Reptile Centre houses a large variety of native reptiles (approximately 200 reptiles are housed at the Centre!!) and other wildlife with over 50 different species on display including:

Venomous snakes
Non-venomous snakes
Fruit Bats
Wedgetailed Eagle
An Emu

Learn to Identify Animals...
The main aim of the Centre is to enable people to see native wildlife in natural surroundings and to help them to able to identify animals, particularly venomous or non-venomous snakes, that they may encounter in the bush or possibly their homes or backyards.

Learn about their habits & habitats...
The Centre provides a wonderful opportunity for visitors to safely observe reptiles, to see what they look like, how they behave and to learn about their habits and habitats. The large enclosures enable visitors to see these creatures in their natural habitat settings. Experience a walk through our finch and skink enclosure. Visitors can experience close viewing of the animals for excellent photographs.

Rescue & Rehabilitation...
Centre Owners, Klaas and Mieke Gaikhorst, have been rescuing and rehabilitating reptiles for over 28 years and during that time have seen many harmless reptiles (including legless lizards and pythons) killed unnecessarily due to an inability by people to correctly identify them. Prior to opening the Centre, Klaas was the reptile keeper at Perth Zoo. He saw a very strong need for educating people about reptiles and left the zoo in 1993 to realise his dream of establishing an educational facility.

John Forrest National Park, on the northern edge of The Hills Forest, is one of Australia's oldest conservation areas and Western Australia's first national park.The area was first established in 1898 as a reserve to conserve its many natural and cultural features.

It became John Forrest National Park in 1947, in honour of the famous WA explorer and statesman. In the early 1900s, visitors came from Perth by rail and alighted from their trains at Hovea Station, a short distance from Hovea Falls, to enjoy a 'day in the bush'. During the Great Depression of the 1930s, sustenance workers built steps, ornamental gardens, walls, footpaths, picnic shelters and swimming areas. The park soon became a sanctuary for city dwellers and remains so for many people today.

What to do:
Sightseeing, picnicking, bushwalking, photography, mountain biking, horse riding. Some areas have access for the disabled.

Attend a Nearer to Nature guided activity. Call 9295 2244 for information.
Walktrails lead to features such as Hovea Falls and National Park Falls. A trail continues along the northern side of Jane Brook to Rocky Pool, where the brook can be crossed and the return journey made along the John Forrest Heritage Trail. The falls and creek usually flow from the beginning of winter to about the end of October.
The Swan View Tunnel
28 km east of Perth.

How to get there:
Leave Perth on the Great Eastern Highway. The park lies to the north of the highway and is well signposted. There are three entrances off the highway.

From summer to winter, from north to south, and from high outcrops to deep river and stream valleys, the forests of Avon Valley National Park are constantly changing. The Avon River flows in winter and spring when the river churns over spectacular rapids. During summer and autumn the river diminishes to a series of pools in a bed of granite boulders and tea-tree thickets. The park features forests and granite outcrops, panoramic views over the Avon Valley and the chance to see a wide variety of birds and wildlife.
Visiting the park
The roads within the park are all unsealed. The nearest telephone, petrol and food outlets are at Gidgegannup or Toodyay, 30 kilometres from the park. There are some picnic facilities and basic camping sites. The small amount of development means much of the park has wilderness qualities. The best time to visit is during the cooler months.

The camping grounds have wood barbecues, picnic tables and pit toilets. Water is available in the Bald Hill and Homestead camping areas. A fee is charged for camping in the park. Go to the ranger's residence to pay fees. The steep and rough roads are not suitable for caravans and trailers.

If you intend to walk off the marked tracks or camp away from the camping grounds, please let the ranger know beforehand. It is suggested that you bring plenty of water and avoid strenuous walking on hot days. Make sure you have a topographic map and compass if you plan to go on the longer tracks. Bring binoculars and a camera for the views and wildlife.

The Avon River can be run by experienced canoeists in winter and is made famous by the Avon Descent each August. In summer the river slows to a trickle, becoming a series of shallow pools unsuitable for swimming.
80 km north-east of Perth via the Toodyay Road. Turn left into Morangup Road, and left onto Quarry Road.

Marmion Marine Park has great natural beauty and limitless potential for aquatic recreation. The clear shallow lagoons, reefs and small islands provide habitats for seabirds, marine mammals and other remarkably diverse marine life. The reefs are a diver's paradise, forming ledges, caves and swimthroughs. They are inhabited by a wonderful array of fish species and colourful invertebrates. Marmion was the State's first marine park, declared on 13 May 1987.

One the park's jewels is undoubtedly Boyinaboat Reef, which lies at the southern end of a chain of inshore reefs. It is just 75 metres from the sea wall of Hillarys Boat Harbour, and its accessibility and beauty has made it one of the most popular dive sites in Perth. Caverns in the reef provide homes for many fish, including western blue devils, old wives, banded sweep, crested morwong, horseshoe leatherjackets, dusky morwong, truncate coralfish, bullseyes, wrasse and red-striped cardinalfish. The reef top often comes alive with the frantic feeding of large schools of buffalo bream. Blue and orange nudibranchs are common and add to the colour.

Offshore from Little Island, sponges, gorgonians, hydroids, sea urchins and sea squirts crowd beneath ledges and into caves, and sea lions laze on the island's beach, sometimes joining divers in the water. The seagrass meadows that grow in sandy areas around the island support a huge range of animals such as bailer shells
What to see and do: Boating, surfing, fishing (outside sanctuary zones), windsurfing and swimming are popular and there are numerous boat ramps. Spearfishing is prohibited within 1800 metres of the shore and for divers using underwater breathing equipment. Whale watching and fishing charters leave from the marina, in season. Diving charters operate for most of the year and diving instruction is available. See Dive & Snorkel Sites in Western Australia for mud maps and further information on suggested dive sites, including those below.
Boyinaboat Reef
The stunning Boyinaboat Reef is just 75 metres from the sea wall of Hillarys Boat Harbour and is one of Perth's most popular dive sites. It is in about six metres of water.
Little Island
An underwater nature trail has been provided at Little Island, in about five metres of water. The trail has 10 plaques that describe various aspects of marine ecology. It is suitable for both SCUBA divers and snorkellers.
Mettams Pool
This sheltered pool is a good family spot ideal for the first time snorkeller or for introducing children to snorkelling. It is less than two metres deep inside the pool. There is access for the disabled.
North Lump
This entirely submerged reef offers a rewarding dive within a small area. It has interesting arches, caves and tunnels and excellent invertebrate life.
Marmion Marine Park lies offshore from Perth's northern suburbs, between Trigg Island and Burns Beach.

Travelling time: It is just 20 to 40 minutes drive from the centre of Perth.
Good access to the beach and adjacent parking is available all along West Coast Highway. Boat launching facilities are available at Hillarys Boat Harbour, Ocean Reef Boat Harbour and Mullaloo Point.
Pinnaroo Valley Memorial Park is widely considered to be the most environmentally responsible cemetery in Australia. The park, which had its first burial in 1978, has been developed and maintained as a natural bushland cemetery, planted with native species only, with flat bronze plaques to mark graves. No monuments are permitted.
The natural environment of Pinnaroo provides a haven for many native animals, including kangaroos. The grounds are a popular attraction for walks, jogging, picnics – even wedding photography.
Corner of Mitchell Freeway and Whitfords Avenue, Padbury.
Joondalup & Neil Hawkins Park, Joondalup
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)
Joondalup is a northern suburb and regional centre in Perth, Western Australia. Its Local Government Area is the City of Joondalup, Western Australia. The suburb is named after Lake Joondalup, on the banks of which the suburb resides.
The name Joondalup is a Noongar Aboriginal word, first recorded in 1837 and possibly meaning either "place of whiteness or glistening", or "place of a creature that can only move backwards”. The majority of land in the area remained largely undeveloped until the 1960s, and Joondalup started to become the "city of the north" in the late 1980's to the early 1990's when many houses and businesses were established.
Joondalup is bounded by Burns Beach Road to the north, the proposed Mitchell Freeway to the west, Eddystone and Lakeside Drives to the south and Lake Joondalup to the east. Grand Boulevard and Joondalup Drive run through the centre of Joondalup. Most of Joondalup is zoned commercial or residential, although a significant suburban area exists between Moore Drive and Burns Beach Road near Currambine train station, and some small residential estates have been built in recent years along Lakeside Drive.
The Yellagonga Regional Park and a small bushland corridor near the TAFE and university campuses can be found in the east and south. Joondalup's centre is a shopping and retail area, with the major shopping centre called Lakeside Joondalup. Lakeside was opened by the then W.A. premier Richard Court in 1994. As of early 2007 it is under construction to be heavily extended, mainly to cater for the growing population of the nearby area.
The other main facilities in addition to the Lakeside centre are a large library, a major police station and other commercial and government organisations. Some entertainment venues include The Old Bailey, Dusk, Grand Boulevard Tavern, and a new Irish Bar which stays open until the early hours of the morning.
Another feature of the city is the Joondalup Resort at Connolly. This golf resort features 27 holes. The city pavements feature tiles hand-painted by local school children. One of Perth's oldest WAFL clubs, the West Perth Football Club, moved to Joondalup in the 1990s and has since done exceedingly well in the WAFL competition, their latest premiership coming in 2003 over rivals Subiaco.
The city has a number of parks including Central Park and Neil Hawkins Park in the Yellagonga National Park. The Neil Hawkins Park is home to many parrots including the ringneck, cockatoos and kangaroos. The park sits alongside Lake Joondalup and wetlands which stretches out between Burns Beach Road to the north and Ocean Reef Road to the south.
These wetlands provide refuge for migratory birds. The main accommodation in Joondalup is the Joondalup resort, which is located at Joondalup Golf Course. A new hotel, Joondalup City Hotel, is now open on Grand Boulevard. Walking tracks near Lake Joondalup and through the Yellagonga National Park are also available.
The ANZ Joondalup Home and Lifestyle Expo is an annual exhibition at Arena Joondalup. The Expo is usually late March to early April every year.
