Queenstown was a highlight of the trip. It’s a big party town on the bank of Lake Wakatipu and home to more adventure sports than we knew existed. Every second building is a bar and most of the others are cafes or sports stores. Not only that, it’s gorgeous. We spent our evenings by the lake sampling local wines and beer before heading out to find something to eat at one of the many restaurants.
We took a wine tour through the Otago region and learnt all about Pino Noir and Pinot Gris and climbed to the top of Queenstown Hill. Hill is an understatement. It’s a mountain. And the views from the summit are incredible.
