Please note: A number of QLDC’s online services will be offline tonight (Friday 23 October) at 9.00pm for an estimated 30 to 60 minutes, due to an update to our internet connection.

Sister Cities

Sister City relationships foster the growth of a mutual understanding and long-term friendship between countries and regions, as well as the communities within them. This bond allows for a continuous exchange of ideas and culture, and even facilitates development within the areas of trade and tourism.

Sister Cities aims to foster cross-border communications – a mutual exchange of ideas, people, and materials in a range of cultural, educational, youth, sports, municipal, professional, and technical projects. The establishment of sister city friendships stimulates interaction between people of different cultures and countries on a people-to-people basis.

QLDC enjoys sister city relationships with two other cities:

  • Aspen, Colorado, USA
  • Hangzhou, Zhejiang, China

Queenstown has also signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Ulsan City, in South Korea to work together on tourism and promotion.

If you would like to know more about our sister city relationships or may be interested in connecting with Queenstown Lakes District as a sister city, please get in touch:
