Panoramic view of beautiful Queenstown in Autumn
Queenstown is a scenic resort town in Otago Province of New Zealand's South Island. It is built around an inlet called Queenstown Bay on Lake Wakatipu, a long thin glacial formation, and has spectacular views of nearby mountains including the Remarkables Range, Cecil Peak and Walter Peak. The town is beautiful all year, but particularly stunning in Autumn, as shown here.
