Highlands – Experience the Exceptional

A world-class tourism destination just 45 minutes from Queenstown Airport, Highlands is home to a range of exceptional experiences which are exciting for the whole family. From the moment you arrive, you’ll be looked after by their friendly team.

You can give everything a go, or just a couple of things – the choice is yours. From the Supercar Ferrari Fast Dash to Go-Karting and the Radical U-drive, you can race to your hearts content with options for you to self-drive and find out what it really feels like to drive at speed. Or you can hop into the passenger’s seat while one of their professional drivers shows you and your friends what Supercars can really do on the track.

With its scenic location along the edge of an evergreen forest and sweeping views of Central Otago high country, Highlands beautifully combines exciting experiences off and on the track with outstanding, purpose-built facilities.

Explore the one-of-a-kind Sculpture Park, visit the Highlands Museum to learn about NZ racing history and see for yourself Michael Schumacher’s Benetton Formula One car. Grab a bite and a beverage at Highlands Caf?, have a go at some mini-golf and finish the day off at the Aroma Wine Tasting Room to sample the finest Central Otago and NZ wines.

No experience is necessary and all the gear you’ll need is provided for you by their friendly, professional staff.

Voted the #1 Thing to Do in Cromwell by TripAdvisor, Highlands is conveniently located along SH 6 in Cromwell in beautiful Central Otago. It’s a must do when you’re exploring the region – ideal for day trips because Highlands offers just the right mix of adrenaline and adventure off and on the track.

Whether you’re travelling solo, as a couple, in a group, or with family, Highlands is a dream destination with exceptional experiences for all to enjoy.
