Queenstown or Wanaka as base?

Jump to last reply

I will be in QT for two days – post Milford Sound hike – for some adventure activities and checking out the town. After that, I would like to do a winery tour (day three) and then the Routeburn day hike (day four). I’ve researched winery tours from this forum and found a good one based out of QT and another good one based out of Wanaka.

Does it make sense for me to use QT as a base to do the winery tour and Routeburn hike? Knowing I would be out and about most of day 3 and day 4, is there much I could even see in Wanaka? I’m debating whether it’s just better to stay in QT and drive back and forth one day for the Routeburn hike or if I should switch hotels for a night or two. I’ve heard Wanaka is very nice but I also think it might not be worth it to switch hotels just for one night.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
