Choose to enjoy one of the many great cafes and explore Arrowtown or get straight into your scenic morning ride along the beautiful Arrow and Kawarau Rivers to the Kawarau Suspension Bridge – home of the world famous Bungy jump.
From Bungy spend the afternoon biking at your leisure along the Gibbston River Trail using our informative winery map to visit as many of the 8+ wineries linked throughout this easy riding trail. Enjoy a relaxed lunch en-route or picnic at one of the many Wineries.
We will pick you up at 4:30pm (4:00pm 1 May – 31 August) from Gibbston Tavern or your winery if choice for your relaxing vehicle transfer back to Queenstown.

A stunning setting down a historic gravel road. The effort made to visit Chard Farm is always worthwhile.

The most well known winery in the valley. Enjoy their cheesery or visit the cellar door for a tasting. Beautiful outdoor area to be enjoyed.
Based in an old church, backing onto a large grass area stacked with games, Cargo is a great spot to hang out. It is a real highlight for both the wine and the beer drinker.
The Rockburn Cellar Door offers relaxed tastings of their award winning wines in a unique setting, at the iconic Gibbston Tavern. A pure expression of Central Otago in your glass.
Full of personality, Mt Rosa is located at the end of the valley and is certainly worth the effort to visit. Tastings here are extensive, so allow approximately 40min.
A great place to visit, Brennan is located at the end of the valley. While you’re here, have a go at petanque.
Our standard pick up location for a reason. The tavern is full of character and serves delicious wood fire pizza. A great place to relax.
