MAP OF QUEENSTOWN
DIRECT FLIGHTS TO QUEENSTOWN FROM AUSTRALIA
Incredible sunshine in both summer time and winter results in a popular golf resort for Australian golfers and players from all over the world. One reason Queenstown golf is so popular amongst our Australian relatives is that travelling to the heart of Qtown couldn't be any easier for them. Australian's can fly direct from a number of Australia's major cities including the super cities Sydney & Melbourne and also Brisbane. In a matter of just a few hours Australian's can travel from door-to-door to appreciate everything New Zealand's adventure capital has to offer.
Unfortunately if you live on the west coast of Australia e.g. Perth, it's going to take you a little longer to get here - a typical flight time (includes one stop) would be 10 - 15 hours.
To save you a little time we've provided a few inks to Google Flights, which provides information about the best flights to Queenstown from all of the major airlines. Google Flights provides the ability to search or filter by 'round trips', 'one-way' and 'multi-city travel'.
GOLF TRANSPORT - TRAVEL IN COMFORT & STYLE!
Upon your arrival at Queenstown airport, you're going to need some golf transport. You can hire a car or any another vehicle type at the airport, however in our experience it's better to organise your transport prior to arrival. Arranging car rental as soon as you step off the plane can be quite stressful and often visitors are eager to go straight to their hotel accommodation to relax in preparation for a spectacular golfing experience over the following days.
If you're wondering what type of golf transport to hire, you're going to need something practical, comfortable and economical . Two vehicle types which often fit the bill are the Mercedes Sprinter 'Prestige' and 'Executive' ranges - they're are ideal for the job - they're extremely comfortable, come with 12 leather seats, very spacious, reliable, air-conditioned and the van rental price starts from just $175.00 per day, so the larger your group the more economical it is.
