Best For Kids in Wanaka
Local Recommendations from our My Guide Queenstown team
Queenstown isn't just for boisterous adventurers, there are plenty of activities for kids to enjoy. Queenstown for kids can mean farm trips, gentle rafting, horse riding, luge and aqua parks - there's some great days out to be had here.
Queenstown activities for kids are growing every year and the facilities are surprisingly impressive. Queenstown Events Centre is a definite addition to any family itinerary. Here, you'll find Alpine Aqualand, with numerous pools, slides and water features. Skyline Queenstown operates a luge park, attracting riders aged 7 to 70, and it's often the kids having to drag the adults away. For more fresh air, try a farm visit, where you'll find petting enclosures and horse treks - Walter Peak High Country Farm and The Shearing Shed are especially family friendly. The Kiwi Birdlife Park is also worth visiting. If you love adventure, try the kid-friendly Queenstown Ice Arena or Queenstown Snowshoeing.
