Found this old photo today - this is Queenstown's Fire Station, a long, long time ago in a galaxy far, far away ... actually not that far really, this is the corner of Brecon St & Shotover St, right next to our rental operation :-) Site of the Brian Smith Park today.

Great people and very good new gear plus I like their hot chocolate drink machine
straight off the plane to Browns for the gear so a drink is welcome

Friendly staff, good service, listened to my concerns about renting comfortable ski boots for really narrow feet and the boots were fabulous. Dropped gear at hotel, and picked it up when we had finished with it.

14th September 2017

Awesome place with friendly, patient staff who are very very knowledgeable in regards to the equipment you can buy and rent. Highly recommend going here to buy boots or to just rent as you will get a great experience with them. Thanks again.
