New Zealand Day 15 – Queenstown

Lake Wakatipu

Today was ours to explore Queenstown. We had breakfast and went for a walk around Lake Wakatipu to take in the sites.

The weather was really nice so we opted to take a cruise on the TSS Earnslaw, a 1912 Edwardian vintage twin screw steamer. It was a beautiful boat and a wonderful experience to take in the sites of the lake from this vessel.

When we got back to Queenstown we had a nice lunch and then headed up to the Skyline Gondola to take in the views of the city and the lake from Bob’s Peak.

The ride up may have frightened Cynthia a wee bit…

Tomorrow we we have a relatively short drive to Te Anau which will be our launching point for the drive to Milford Sound.
