Queenstown Central Lakefront Shopping

Start your Queenstown shopping journey at the heart of the city, where you’ll discover art galleries, souvenir shops and fashion stores galore. This popular hub is a great place to scour for a New Zealand gift to bring back home. Better yet, with so many shops located on the stunning Queenstown lakefront, you can saunter from store to store with the backdrop of the beautiful mountain ranges that border Lake Wakatipu.

Shops along Shotover Street tend to close late, meaning you can easily grab food for dinner on your way back to your accommodation. You can conveniently buy anything you need by walking down the street—whether that’s ski clothing at Outside Sports, shoes from Platypus or a gift for the family at Aotea Gifts.
