Southern Discoveries

Southern Discoveries operates Spirit of Queenstown Scenic Cruise on Lake Wakatipu. Departing Queenstown several times daily, it journeys to Mt Nicholas High Country Farm. With a purpose-built bike rack, comfortable viewing lounge and café and bar on board, Spirit of Queenstown is the perfect way to transfer to the Around the Mountains Cycle Trail.
On arrival at Mt Nicholas, visitors can choose to join a Mt Nicholas Farm Experience or enjoy a taste of the Around the Mountains Cycle Trail on the 14km Station 2 Station Cycle Trail to Walter Peak. The Station 2 Station Cycle Trail includes a return cruise to Queenstown on the vintage steamship TSS Earnslaw, a Walter Peak BBQ or picnic lunch and bike/e-bike hire is available.
The company also operates a private charter boat on Lake Wakatipu, which carries up to 30 passengers.
Southern Discoveries is the original Milford Sound operator and provides the widest range of excursions in the fiord, including seamless coach and flight connections from Queenstown and Te Anau.
The company is Qualmark Gold endorsed and maintains an ongoing commitment to conservation through sponsorship of the Sinbad Sanctuary Project in partnership with the Department of Conservation and Fiordland Conservation Trust.
