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.

Hi Simon, I just wanted to thank you for helping me fulfill a long term dream in shooting a trophy elk. I couldn't be happier with the end result – definitely one of the only animals I've ever shot that doesn't suffer ground shrinkage as you get up to it! It just got bigger and bigger! A lot of amazing country was covered in the two days it took to find him - couldn't have done it without your help!

This is the second time I've been hunting with Cardrona Outfitters and it won't be the last (don't tell my wife that though)! Feel free to share my comments as I'd highly recommend you to anyone considering going to NZ hunting!
