Queenstown is a vibrant international resort which has become well- known as “The Adventure Capital of the World” with a wide range of sightseeing and outdoor adventure activities suitable for all ages, all year round: jetboating, horseriding, golf, wine tours, ski/snowboarding, trekking, white water rafting, bungy jumping, mountain biking, luge, paraflying and many more.

Our central location is ideal as the township of Queenstown is less than 5 minutes walk giving our students access to a range of shops, restaurants, cafes and bars.  We are also located next to the Queenstown Botanical Gardens giving students the opportunity to take a peaceful stroll between classes or outside of class times.

ABC College of English is located near QRC House with our partner Queenstown Resort College, an NZQA Category 1 provider specialising in Tourism and Hospitality Management.

Situated in the Southern Alps region of the South Island, on the shores of Lake Wakatipu, surrounded by spectacular mountain scenery, clean rivers and lakes and clean alpine air, Queenstown is a place where you can enjoy the best of what New Zealand has to offer.
