Jack’s Point: A Hidden Gem of Queenstown

DATE 13th May 2019

Tucked along the base of The Remarkables mountain range, Jack’s Point is an idyllic Queenstown community bursting with activities and beautiful views. Quiet and pristine, Jack’s Point feels a world away from the hustle and bustle of life, yet is only five minutes from Frankton, 15 minutes from Queenstown Central, and 20 minutes to the Remarkables Ski Area. With a world-class golf resort, walking trails, fine cuisine and breathtaking views from every angle, Jack’s Point may be just the ‘god’s zone’ getaway you’ve been looking for.

Stunning views

The landscapes and majestic mountain vistas that surround Jack’s Point will follow you from your first sip of morning coffee to evening wine. The Remarkables mountain range to the east reminds you that a walking trail and the ski slopes are never far away, while Lake Wakatipu gleams in the west. All-day sunshine streams into the exquisite homes elevated along Jack’s Point, inviting you to get out and explore the inspiring activities on offer.

Activities to suit everyone

The 18-hole, par 72 championship Jack’s Point Golf Course is designed to reflect and blend in with the natural landscape and received the prestigious IAGTO 2019 Sustainability Award for its commitment to environmental preservation. You won’t be disappointed by the views awaiting you from each tee on this golf course – golden tussocks, lush greenery and sheer rocky drops meld together in an astounding backdrop to your game. Whether golf is your passion or a new hobby, this will be a course worth remembering.

You will be spoilt for walking trails while staying at Jack’s Point. With nearly 35km of trails right outside your door, there is a track for everyone. For the keen walker, the 5km Jack’s Point Track will take you along Lake Wakatipu, looping into Kelvin Heights and back home. A bounty of shorter trails, nearer the mountains or lake as you choose, will delight your eyes and energise your mind.

With winter just around the bend, it is never too early to organise that ski holiday. Only 20 minutes from the base of the Remarkables Ski Area and 35 minutes from Coronet Peak, Jack’s Point is accessible to all the on-snow action. The Remarkables has terrain to suit all levels of ski and snowboarders, and lessons are readily available, so the whole family can enjoy a day on the hill before piling into the lodge for a hot chocolate. If you are a seasoned pro on the slopes or looking for more adrenaline, a sight-seeing pass or heli-skiing adventure might be more appealing. A sight-seeing pass will transport you to new levels of awe-inspiring views and is suitable for most ability levels, while heli-skiing will astound the experienced skier.
