Shopping in Queenstown

Explore art galleries, exclusive Kiwi labels, fresh food markets and more

Queenstown has some of the best shopping in New Zealand, with a buzzing community of local and international stores. If you need some retail therapy after an adventurous stay, you’re well catered for! With art galleries, bookshops, quality clothes stores and luxury spas, exclusive Kiwi labels, as well as local markets full of traditional and hand-crafted New Zealand gifts, Queenstown offers a great shopping experience for all.

Queenstown offers several small malls and plenty of quaint streets to explore. Most attractions have shops attached, and it's worth checking out the museums and art galleries, for some one-of-a-kind gifts. There are lots of places to stock up on the essentials including a couple of CBD supermarkets. In the city itself, head for the area around Shotover Street. There's plenty of leisurely shopping to be had, with a few small indoor malls nestling close to plenty of bars and restaurants, for essential refreshment. Try O'Connell's mall if you like all your shopping under one roof. Arrowtown has some great boutique clothing stores.

Hunting in New Zealand with Simon from Cardrona Outfitters truly was a hunt of a lifetime, from hunting Fallow bucks in the beautiful Cardrona Valley, to hunting Chamois and Tahr up in the majestic Alps of the west coast!

The food and lodgings were first class, and Simon is an amazing guide. His knowledge and experience hunting world class trophies is second to none!

Thanks again mate for the incredible experience you provided, it was a hunt I will remember and talk about forever - I'm already getting excited planning my trip back with Cardrona Outfitters next year!
