Beautiful walk

This is worth every minute of the effort to get up it. Be prepared for the climb. It is not that easy.

Queenstown hill is well travelled by Locals and Tourists alike. There are amazing views if you go all the way to the top - once you visit the Basket of Dreams, keep going on up the hill for more views from the summit.

Just a little walk where you can have beautiful views of the city, lakes and mountain. New Zealand has lots and lots of walks to do, This one does not disappoint.

My wife and I did the hill trek yesterday. We are 60 yrs in only moderate shape. It was a good hike. I would agree with all of the other TripAdvisor reviews - not much to add...except I would recommend anyone doing this hike should wear running shoes or hiking boats with a good tread. We saw several women on... More

Great steep hill climb, easy mini hike for beginners. I like to take a few short cuts to make it a little more intense for exercise. Amazing views at the top and perfect for a well deserved picnic.

You have climb about 500 meters, but it is worth the effort. On the hill you will rewarded with a 360° view of Queenstown area.

One hour up, one hour down. Those in shape will really enjoy this. Take the forest path to the right for a better experience.

Steady, uphill hike right in Queenstown providing amazing views over Queenstown and Lake Wakatipu! There are a few signs in town leading you to the trail head of this hike. My friend and I misread one of the signs and ended up taking a longer route up to the trail head through the neighborhoods instead, but nonetheless, still gorgeous views!... More
