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.

Awesome experience! Everything about the trip was first class and exceeded all my expectations. I would not think of going to New Zealand with anyone else. Simon went out of his way to attend to everyone’s needs and ensure that they had a memorable trip. The game animals were plentiful and Simon made sure that everyone had great opportunities to take the trophies they were after. I highly recommend Cardrona Outfitters and Simon Hawkins for your New Zealand hunting experience.
