Like most places that are popular with backpackers, Queenstown makes an awesome end of footy trip destination.

Known as the Adventure Capital of the World, this is the perfect place to find out which of your team mates really is the toughest and bravest!  Choose from bungy jumping, skydiving, jet boating, hang-gliding, white-water rafting and zip-lining, or take it down a level and battle it out on the downhill luge ride, the golf course or a bike ride around the lake.

The ski season usually runs until early October so you might even be able to get some skiing or boarding in too!  There are several ski-fields to choose from, with the closest being just 20 minutes from town.

The nightlife is unbeatable too! The town is dotted with over 150 bars, restaurants and cafes, so there’s plenty of options, and everything is within walking distance.  Whether you’re looking for a cosy wine bar, a casual pub or some live music or a DJ, you’ll find it in Queenstown.

So dust off your passports – Queenstown is just a short flight away from the east coast of Australia.
