A boil water is in place for businesses and properties across Queenstown following a number of confirmed local cases of illness caused by the protozoa, cryptosporidium. This affects all properties serviced by the Council’s Queenstown supply including Frankton, Quail Rise and Tucker Beach Rd, Kelvin Heights and Hanley’s Farm. Read more here.

From Monday 18 September there will be no parking available directly outside the Gorge Road Council office due to construction activity associated with the Town Centre Arterial Road. Our Gorge Road Council office will be open as usual. But if you’d prefer, you can make use of our online services via our website or give us a call on 03 441 0499.

The state of local emergency in Queenstown, originally declared on Friday morning after a severe weather event, has been lifted. However, some restrictions will remain in place to protect public safety as the focus turns to recovery. Full information here.

Weddings and Civil Unions

Our Council parks and reserves are open for everyone in our community to use and offer iconic, beautiful scenery for Weddings and Civil Union ceremonies.


Our Wedding and Civil Union Guidelines are used to maintain equal-use within Council parks and reserves. This process is to help connect permit holders and the general public’s recreational use to the land.

Within these guidelines you'll find pricing and capacity restrictions, a defined list of the most popular locations within the district, and limitations to the frequency of booking these sites for your reference.

It is our intention to ensure all of our parks and reserves are able to be utilised as passive recreational spaces for the enjoyment of all.
