Moonlight Lodge

Moonlight Lodge is located deep in the Moonlight Valley immediately north of Queenstown, overlooking sweeping tussock terraces and stunning beech forest.

Historic water races, tailings and the remains of old huts give glimpses into the rich gold mining heritage of the area, once home to over 3000 gold miners during the 1862 gold rush.

Featuring double/twin ensuite rooms, Moonlight Lodge has all the modern comforts and our beautiful setting allows you to relax, unwind and explore the area at your leisure.
