When is the best time of year to get married here in Queenstown, you ask? Honestly – anytime!
Springtime (September-November) combines the best of both worlds – warmer temperatures, longer days and fresh, bright colours begin to transform the landscape; but there is also often still plenty of snow on the mountains for great spring skiing and riding at any of the region’s six diverse ski fields.
In summer (November-March), warm weather and long evenings are perfect for alfresco dining, lakeside barbecues and getting outdoors to enjoy the lakes and trails. If you are after warmer weather temperatures, then January/February may be the months for you!
Visit in autumn (April-May) and enjoy the spectacular change of seasons as the landscape bursts into a blaze of red and gold. These colours can make the perfect backdrop for incredible wedding photos.
From June to September, the region transforms into a winter wonderland, attracting snow enthusiasts from around the world with stunning scenery, crisp blue-sky days, easy access to some of New Zealand’s finest skiing, and lots of great winter events.
Getting here: Queenstown boasts an international airport and is very easy to get to either directly or by connecting through Auckland or Christchurch. Direct flights are available from many major Australian cities including Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and the Gold Coast.
