Everyday serving top-notch, fresh local fare!  The Café is fully licensed so you can enjoy a vino or a coffee while taking in the spectacular views from our amazing alfresco dining and viewing deck.

Our expansive deck offers fantastic indoor-outdoor flow and there’s no place else in the world that can offer such sweeping views of a world-class racetrack, with its own lake and the backdrop of the Central Otago high country.

With discounts for children and seniors, the Highlands Museum is affordable fun for everyone in the family and perfect as a day trip from Queenstown or neighbouring towns.

Highlands History

For the dedicated motorsport fan. But be warned, it’s not intended as a private box where you can sit and watch a race. There may be an electric shock system or a timed door that opens if you haven’t finished your business in time.

Sound of Music

Take aim in urinals cleverly disguised as musical instruments. We’ve also got a very special presidential urinal that bears an uncanny resemblance to someone that you may or may not recognise.  It is actually Hugh Jass from Tarras.
