Free day in Queenstown. Woke up late this morning and had some toast. Took a walk around the lake in queenstown. There’s a beautiful walking trail as well as a rose garden, frisbee golf course, tennis courts, ice skating, and lawn bowling throughout the park. Stunning views of the mountains surrounding queenstown. Stopped for lunch at Fergburger (a must in queenstown). Followed up with dessert at Patagonia chocolates along the lake. Tonight, I’ll catch the gondola that has a great overlook of the city and hopefully catch a sunset as well as the night view of queenstown. Then I’ll have dinner at the top of the gondola restaurant and around 9:30p do some stargazing atop the mountain. My nerdy inquisitive self couldn’t be happier.
Today’s a day for the real thrill seeker as we head to the adventure capital of the world, Queenstown. Before we get there, we visit Wanaka, a picturesque town, great for a spot of lunch.
Lake wanaka. 4th largest in NZ.
Wanaka – resort town.
Crown range summit – 1000m
We then head to Bungy Bridge to see where the adventure all started. There’s no pressure, you can jump or watch and it’s up to you.
Kawarau bridge bungy jump 43 m
The remarkables mtn range – goes north and south.
In the evening we’ll visit Queenstown’s nightspots, often as lively as the bungy jump. (B)
