Queenstown’s Five Mile Centre is something of a one-stop-shop for health and wellness in the district.
People are coming to understand that keeping healthy and feeling good isn’t just about the number of reps they complete at the gym, or what you do or don’t eat for breakfast. A wide-ranging and more holistic approach to health and wellness is key to living long, full and healthy lives, and Five Mile’s got a surprising amount of needs covered.
Yes that’s right – get into this while you (or they) are young! Mamas Five Mile Childcare has the perfect space in which to encourage littlies to play, learn, discover and grow. Developing lifelong skills of resilience, problem solving and teaching the ability to adapt helps children learn and develop into academically and emotionally well-balanced individuals.

Get fit and get out there
If you’re into running, rugby, netball, yoga or the great outdoors, our new Stirling Sports and long-standing Rebel Sports stores have all the gear you need to motivate yourself (and your crew). Did you know that outdoor exercise, also known as “green exercise”, is great for the brain, body, and soul? It boosts your energy and gives you your daily dose of vitamin D. Being surrounded by nature changes the physical expression of stress in your body.
If you can’t get out there, then get in to Flex Fitness. With their group fitness classes, high-quality equipment, and nutritional guidance, Flex Fitness consistently provides the most relevant physical exercise, nutrition, and education systems to members to help achieve optimal health.
Fuel the body, feed the soul
There’s a saying that ‘variety is the spice of life’ but not many know that the poem from which that lines comes continues with the line ‘that gives it all its flavour’. Taking that literally, spices are known to have several health benefits – spices make traditional Indian home-cooked food amongst the healthiest meals eaten around the world.
Head into Spice King at Five Mile and breathe in the heady ‘spice of life’ aromas in a store that’s packed with spices not just from India, but all around the world.
All that exercise means expended energy has to be replaced, which is where Five Mile’s popular Tank Juice comes in. Tank’s a New Zealand-owned and family run business focussed on making delicious, healthy and fresh smoothies, juices, salads, and wraps with no added sugars or artificial flavouring.
Hikari Sushi Bar is renowned as a bit of a gem in Five Mile’s foodie offerings – their sushi and meals are as fresh as they come, with plenty of gluten free and vegetarian options. The benefits of Japanese food are well documented, so head on in.
