What to know before you fly to Queenstown?

Queenstown is the principle holiday resort town in the province of Otago, in the heart of New Zealand's South Island. After establishing a settlement at Bluff on the south coast in 1823, it was the gold rush of the 1860s that delivered prosperity to Queenstown. Gold was discovered in 1862 in Arrow River, near modern day Queenstown. Legend has it, that a local gold digger gave the town its name by saying the location was fit for Queen Victoria.
