An Australian teenager is in a critical condition after falling off a hotel roof in Queenstown.

Senior Constable Chris Blackford said the 19 year old from New South Wales fell while making his way from a second-floor apartment towards the roof at the Glebe apartment complex in Beetham St.

"He fell to the car park below and suffered a major head injury," Blackford said.

The teenager fell at 2.50am today and was airlifted to hospital in critical condition.

It is not the first time a guest has been injured or worse at the high-end Queenstown complex.

Invercargill man Shaun Bernard Hogan, 24, died instantly from head injuries after falling from a rooftop at the Glebe in March 2008.
