Heading to Queenstown, Tasmania? Lucky you! It’s a unique part of the world. The next step after deciding to go is to find the best Queenstown, Tasmania accommodation. And that’s what we will help you with here!

Queenstown is a place you won’t forget. Surrounded by forests and rugged scenery, it can feel like you’ve escaped the modern world when driving around the west coast. However, the drive into Queenstown is quite a different experience. Here, you’ll find bare hills and dusty gullies which are only just starting to get some vegetation back. Queenstown’s landscape is a story of what can happen when mining comes to town.

Copper was discovered in this area in the 1890s and mining has taken place here ever since. These days, the negative effects and pollution from this enterprise are closely monitored but this wasn’t always the case. Thus, the very different landscape you will experience in this town. I remember being quite shocked when I first came here as a child many years ago by how different and desolate everything looked.
