Average time to visit

The climate in New Zealand is incredibly pleasant, with warm and balmy summers and cold crisp winter months with wonderful clear, blue skies. The warmer high-season months of November to April are perfect for outdoor exploration. The colder months of June to August are the best time to ski.

Both North and South Islands are drier on the east coast, rather than on the west, where mountain ranges act as a trap for the moisture-rich winds from the Tasman Sea. It is also worth remembering that it is usually a few degrees cooler on the South Island than the North Island and as New Zealand has a maritime climate, the weather can change rapidly.

Insider's View

Traveling in the winter months, you are ideally located to ski at the Remarkables or Coronet Peak, both of which can be seen from the resort.

Original features are found everywhere, from the old 1850s farmstead converted into the reception, to the old sheep shearing shed beside the driving range.

Description

Located just a short drive from Queenstown, nestled within the Southern Alps and framed by the aptly named Remarkables Mountain Range, are the 500 acres of lush green fairways, rolling hills and gentle babbling streams of Millbrook Resort.

Millbrook Resort is a tranquil haven away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. With an array of well appointed boutique accommodation privately located amid babbling streams and an abundance of flora and fauna.

An impressive 95% of the Millbrook grounds are open space, resulting in a peaceful and tranquil environment to play, stay or live. With a 27 hole golf course, an award winning spa, 4 restaurants and health and fitness area to fill your time at Millbrook, make sure you have enough free time to soak up the surrounding world class scenery with a glass of Central Otago Pinot Noir.

Millbrook is close enough for you to easily access the cosmopolitan buzz of Queenstown, but far enough away to enjoy the tranquillity and splendour of the alpine countryside. The historic gold-mining settlement of Arrowtown is only a short drive away, as are award-winning tourist attractions, wineries, restaurants, and the outdoor activities that have made Queenstown world famous.
