Welcome to My Queenstown Diary!

Hey, and welcome to My Queenstown Diary. My name is Bailey, and I’m the writer, storyteller, and adventurer behind this blog. I’ve been traveling around the world for the last 7 years, and in 2018, I decided to base myself in Queenstown, New Zealand.

With so many stories to tell I decided to start this blog so I can help others plan their trip to New Zealand. Here, you’ll find informative guides along with photos that will not only give you all the info you need but also inspire your trip. I have travel blogs from all over New Zealand with a focus on Queenstown and the South Island, after all, it’s my home…

Travel is about adventure, food, and culture, and on My Queenstown Diary, you’ll find it all! So, don’t be shy to reach out and say hi, my passion is helping others explore New Zealand, and because of my readers, I have what I consider to be the best job in the world!
