Located next to the lake is this beautiful colonial home, that is now a gallery of art, we had had a really nice time exploring the rooms, admiring all the items on display. Definitely worth a visit for something different from the usual souvenirs.

This is a very special place to visit and do take the time to read the history about the house. Amazing old wallpapers and it is quite big for a home of this age. The art works and collections are lovely.

Vesta is a beautiful shop, from the cheerful garden out front to the well curated NZ artwork collections filling the little rooms of the wooden cottage. Well worth to set aside some time to visit Vesta during your Queenstown visit.

Worth visit, house is amazing and art is inspiring, also found something to take back home. Place is unique in the middle of all these made in china/tourist rip off-shops. It s something real.

Stumbled across this fantastic art and craft store on the foreshore of Queenstown and loved it. Many unique items of interest and could easily have taken several items home that day. Would go back again if time permits.

What a gorgeous place this is! A fantastic range of paintings, prints, jewellery, all kinds of beautiful, original things. Easy to get to, walking distance from the centre of town.
