In Queenstown

Drive to Glenorchy and then back to Queenstown town centre

sunny 22 °C

An early start and a 57km lakeside drive to Glenorchy. This was the most spectacular drive we have ever taken in New Zealand - the road closely follows the shoreline of Lake Wakatipu with craggy mountains both sides of the lake and in the distance we saw many snow-covered peaks. Glenorchy is a very small village with several cafes and a pub. However, due to the amazing road, scenery and cute village, large numbers of large tourist buses make their way up there


We drove back into Queenstown and had a pleasant, if windy, walk around the marina area which was very crowded with fellow tourists. We then had an hour or two in the Queenstown Gardens which is located on a peninsula jutting into Lake Wakatipu with views of the mountains and city
