On a summer Saturday morning there are lots of arts and crafts stalls.

Restaurants, bars, cafes, a casino, an ice bar, and the legendary Ermersons Bookbinder beer on tap. The steamer wharf hosts the 100 year old coal fired steam ship, the TSS Earnslaw, which lends a magical grace to this special iconic New Zealand landmark.

An enjoyable walk along the wharf. Take your time to make up your mind where to eat and drink as there are plenty of establishments to choose from. The steamship is worth the walk.

Relaxing area to have a drink or a bite to eat or just enjoy the bay and chill out by yourself or with the family

Right down by the water in Queenstown, great pubs and even better nightlife. How can anything go wrong in that location. Since it's a little bit out of the center you get a relaxed atmospehere but still all the action

Steamer Wharf is where the Earnslaw docks and departs and is home to a casino and Minus 5 ice bar. It is well set out and looks good.
