Art

There is a burgeoning arts and culture scene in Queenstown. The local Art Centre is a second home to many of Queenstown’s local artists and art galleries are dotted throughout the streets and alleyways of central Queenstown. Locals look forward to Showbiz Queenstown’s annual musical and there are a number of community theatre groups that perform throughout the year.
