With the resident population for Queenstown / Wakatipu basin weighs in at a shade under 20,000 there could be some upside in our community developing a strategy to grow our permanent resident population?
With a our international airport going gangbusters and a vibrant tourism sector hosting in excess of 1.4m national and international visitor’s per-annum this service sector is reliant upon families choosing to live and stay in Queenstown.
Adventure tourism, hike tourism, ski tourism, bike tourism, golf tourism and wine tourism why not lifestyle promotion to live Queenstown.

NSW regional cities to lure Sydneysiders
The NSW government will contribute $120,000 to a campaign to lure Sydneysiders to major state regional centres.
The Evocities campaign was created by the cities of Albury, Armidale, Bathurst, Dubbo, Orange, Tamworth and Wagga Wagga, with the aim of promoting life in regional NSW.
The three-year campaign, which kicks off in August, has already received $40,000 from each of the cities, and $1.2 million in federal funding.
NSW will provide $120,000, a government body Industry & Investment NSW announced on Monday.
“NSW’s regional cities offer affordable housing, high level jobs and unparalleled lifestyle opportunities,” the body’s deputy director-general Barry Buffier said in a statement.
“The campaign … has been designed to challenge people’s perceptions about living and working outside of Sydney by presenting regional cities in a new and exciting light.”
