Exploring the Best of The Jack's Point Lifestyle

Those dots in the sky are skydivers coming in to land at Jack's Point.


When entering Jack’s Point, the immediate impression is you’re somewhere special. Surrounded by the Southern Alps with the stunning Remarkables mountain range as the backdrop, Jack’s Point is possibly New Zealand’s most beautiful subdivision. Homes nestle into the naturally undulating landscape, shaped by glaciers from the last ice age, with large green reserves and native planting.

Jack’s Point is a carefully master-planned 3,000 acre settlement. Sections were sold and houses were built in line with a design philosophy ensuring all dwellings are compatible with the mountain environment. An exceptional landscape like Jack’s Point deserves exceptional architecture. Some of New Zealand’s best architects have designed bold, simple structures that reflect and blend with the natural surroundings. Only five percent of Jacks Point land will be built on. The green and mountainous outlook includes Jack’s Point farm which weaves around the golf course, contributing to Jack’s Point open outlook and sense of space. At completion, Jack’s Point will have 1,300 homes and a lakeside Village with accommodation, restaurants and shops.

Whilst Jack’s Point is close to Queenstown, it has its own distinct character, pulse and personality. Sustainability is part of the design ethos including using local natural resources judiciously. Jack’s Point has its own water supply and waste water systems. There are annual Jack’s Point resident levies to fund this in addition to reduced council rates.

Jack’s Point is perfect for raising children and enjoying the best of Queenstown’s exquisite lifestyle. There is a childcare centre on Maori Jack Road, Remarkable Start and another, Best Start, in neighbouring suburb, Hanleys Farm. A new primary school, Te Kura Whakatipu o Kawarau, opened in 2022 in Hanleys Farm near the border of Jack's Point. Wakatipu High School in Frankton is a 10 minute drive or bus ride away. Jack's Point also has a medical centre and a Unichem pharmacy.

Many homes enjoy large, beautifully landscaped grounds with sweeping mountain and lake views. More affordable pockets host townhouses and units, all of which enjoy easy access to the Village, trails and outdoor spaces. There are 6 residential neighbourhoods outside of the Jack’s Point Village. The Highlands offers mostly large, elevated sites often with expansive views and some with reserve frontage. Peregrine Ridge sits just below the northern Highlands with good sized, elevated sites and some also with reserve frontage. Coneburn Ridge is elevated and stretches to the north side of Jacks Point towards Coronet Peak. The Terraces and The North Terraces provide smaller, more affordable homes closer to the Village. Finally, The Preserve is an aspirational neighbourhood situated near the golf course and Lake Wakatipu with lifestyle sized blocks and extraordinary views.

Residents often say one of the best things about living in Jack’s Point is the community spirit here. It’s safe, friendly and connected. Jack’s Point has been designed to balance privacy with community connection and has guidelines on fencing and landscaping to achieve this. Residents often get together for community projects, social gatherings and the annual Christmas party.

Jack’s Point’s 18-hole golf course is one of the best in New Zealand. It consistently ranks in the top 5 in New Zealand and the top 100 internationally. The stunning views are part of the appeal of playing golf at Jack’s Point, but if you don’t play golf, there are other ways to see the sights! Jack’s Point has over 25 km of walking and biking trails that take you through schist walled paddocks with grazing sheep, along the sparkling, turquoise waters of Lake Wakatipu and to hilltops with 360 degree views of Queenstown’s mountain peaks. In addition, there’s a playground, tennis court and sports field, so you really can exercise and play to your heart’s content here!

The Jack’s Point Clubhouse restaurant sits beside Lake Tewa and has a wonderful, inspired feel to it. It’s a great place to meet friends for a morning coffee or sit in the sunshine with a glass of local Pinot Noir in the afternoon. Nearby, the Hanleys Farm subdivision also has the Farmhouse Cafe and arguably the best playground in the Queenstown basin. When the Jack’s Point Village is completed, it’s expected to service 10,000 residents from around the area including neighbouring subdivisions.

Jack’s Point Beach on the shores of Lake Wakatipu is accessed from Jack’s Point and is a spectacular spot for a picnic and some lakeside fun in summer. In winter, The Remarkables Ski Resort access road is a quick, 5-minute drive away. Also close, is the Queenstown International Airport (10 minutes drive), the Frankton shopping centres (also 10 minutes drive) and Queenstown’s CBD (20 minutes drive).
