Kelvin Heights, also called the Kelvin Peninsula, is a suburb of the town of Queenstown in the South Island of New Zealand. Most of the housing of this suburb is near Peninsula Road and is at the base of Peninsula Hill. It is one of the most expensive suburbs in New Zealand in which to buy a house, with the median house value at about NZ$1 million in 2005.[1]

Kelvin Heights features part of the Queenstown Trail, which runs between the suburb and the Frankton Arm section of Lake Wakatipu. It also has a golf course and a Christian camp that is over 50 years old.

At one time there was public access to the prominent Deer Park Heights part of Peninsula Hill (which has several ex-film locations as well as a range of farm animals) from Peninsula Road, but this closed in 2009.[2]
