232***65Very unique view on the top of the mountain. We were actually late for the reservation, the restaurant helped us to postpon our booking from 5:30pm to 8:00pm. We were very grateful for the assistance they offered, everything was great, great view, great foods and great people!
d36***08A half-day tour of the lake by steamboat + Walter Plateau Ranch tour is a beautiful experience that is fresh in the memory of the Queenstown trip. From Queenstown Port to the Ranch Wharf, the steamboat takes 45 minutes one-way, a total of 1.5 hours round-trip voyage, and boat viewing. One is to watch the ancient style of the ship. The steamship TSS Earnslaw, built in 1912, has been baptized by wind and waves for more than a hundred years. It has grown stronger and stronger over time. It is the only coal-fired steamship still in normal operation in the southern hemisphere. Wandering on the boat, looking at the handsome captain at the helm, watching the young fireman swinging a shovel to deliver coals, listening to the melodious music of the teacher's nai luthier, and tasting the authentic taste of coffee and desserts. It is leisurely and comfortable. The second is to appreciate the beautiful scenery of the lake. On the deck, in front of the portholes, and in the corridors, you can admire the scenery of Lake Wakatipu up close. The lake breeze is blowing, the waves are dancing happily, the scenery is charming and refreshing.
Herman_travellerI visited Queenstown for 5 days and wandered around the lake every day happily. it's a very beautiful and peaceful lake with many ducks and seagulls and people like to gather there in the evening.
DJDQAfter visiting the South Island of New Zealand's North Island, Queenstown is my favorite place. There are so many delicious, fun and beautiful scenery, as well as various play experiences. No matter which bite you are, you can find a way to attract you here. Bungee jumping, jet boat, lake cruise, sky gondola and restaurants, I also spend the most money in Queenstown hahaha. The fly in the ointment is that the weather here is unpredictable and overcast. Whether it can catch up with the good weather depends entirely on luck.

On the day I left Queenstown, we had to go to the steam boat to visit the farm + BBQ lunch trip, so we even omitted the breakfast, otherwise there is a stomach to maximize the food!
Speaking of the TSS Earnslaw, it is also the logo of Queenstown. If you stand by Lake Wakatipu, you can see the ancient steamboat on the lake. TSS Earnslaw was launched in February 1912 and was put into operation in October. It was used by the Titanic as a means of transport on cattle, sheep, vehicles and local residents. It is the largest and most luxurious cruise on Lake Wakatipu and the only coal-fired steamship in New Zealand that is still sailing. Driving ranges include Queenstown and the towns of Kingston and Glenorchy at the north and south ends of Lake Wakatipu. Although she is now 100 years old and weather-beaten, but under the care of the locals, the style is still the same.
The activity time is about three and a half hours. The time of the cruise on the steamboat lake is about 90 minutes. The activity also has a combination of afternoon tea. Although shearing the wool and watching the sheepdogs in the sheep actually feel that the sheep are very poor, the scenery is quite beautiful when the weather is good. Sitting outside for lunch, looking at the snowy mountains in the distance, near the blue lake, I immediately felt the value.
When it comes to New Zealand, the name of Queenstown will probably come to mind. If New Zealand is a beautiful country that God has kissed, Queenstown in New Zealand must be favored by God. The blue-green Remarkables, the pure Lake Wakatipu, make up the beautiful lakes and mountains like a movie set. The
sky cable car is located on the top of Bob Peak in Queenstown and is a great location overlooking Queenstown, Lake Wakatipu and the mountains beyond. As the steepest track cable car in the southern hemisphere, when the cable car rises slowly, the panoramic view of Queenstown is complete, snow mountains, lakes, grasslands, towns... stunning four.
Fjord Park Crossing Tour, New Zealand must experience
Today is the earliest time to come to New Zealand. At 5 o'clock in the morning, the alarm clock has already rang, the scenery outside the window is still black, and DIIY has a tomato. The fried rice of the egg, after a full day, was very energetic and fun to play, gathered in the city, and went to Milford Sound together.
Fjord National Park One-day trip, just 2 hours from Queenstown! Take the Milford Alpine Road and start the Fiordland National Park Crossing Tour (2 hours drive from Queenstown to Te Anau, the entrance to the Fiordland National Park and the starting point of the Milford Alpine Highway)
When you come to Queenstown, you must taste the big burger. This is a team that will always line up. Why are there so many people here? I dont know. When you came here, you found out that it was raining today. There are not so many people. We only bought 5 people and bought the burger. After waiting for 10 minutes, the hamburger was released. This burger is really as big as a face. People who have seen the burger confidently have about 8 people. Together, in the production room, all kinds of efficient cooperation and packaging, busy production every day, receiving tourists from all over the world.
A total of chicken, pork and beef burger set, the weight of the person can be eaten by two people if the stomach is small, so it is easier to not waste food, the space inside is not very big, you can only sit down 10 people, most people will take it away.
Where is the Queenstown project? The real journey we chose, real Journeys, is more than 4 hours drive this morning. It is also the only Volvo bus with only 7 cars in the world. It comes to the Milford Sound. The King of the Kings leads us to experience the charm of the canyon and occasionally meet the coastal animals. Sleeping, seeing the strange waterfall, I am going to the biggest ski resort in the southern hemisphere tomorrow, I am full of expectations.
Like the lake, the lake is beautiful and beautiful. Sitting on the water bus will take you to the pier, which is also the center of Queenstown. I just fell in love with Queenstown at the moment I saw the pier.
Today is still a bit cloudy, the clouds are surrounded by mountains, the middle is a lovely little house, below is the clear lake. This is Queenstown. Walking along the beach to the other side is Queenstown Park. I plan to go there and see
Queenstown Park is a long peninsula that Queenstown has extended, so you can walk along the peninsula. This time it has started to rain. It is. There are a lot of flowers on the mountain, there is a small sports field, the locals are in the rain, the flowers are quiet and open
this time is already 6 o'clock, but there are more than two hours from the sunset, so the photo time is abundant, see The battery of the mobile phone and the camera is also very abundant, and this time it is really full of happiness.
There is a small lake in the park. Many wild ducks are leisurely swimming in front of me to swim there. The scholars under the tree, the wild ducks are also leisurely walking around him. This scene is really moving. This bridge has a little feeling in the ring! When the selfie is taken, there is just a duck swimming! The turbulent water is full of hydration.
Waiting until the dark at the top of the mountain, in order to take a night view, it is really long, New Zealand's summer is only nine days past. Everyone waited for me on the indoor sofa, I stood on a small rooftop and crowded with a group of photographers and their tripods. Without a tripod, holding the camera in the hand and standing on the side of the railing, the bones were all blown by the cold wind, but they did not dare to leave. When the person left, the position was followed by a group of photographers who could not get close to the railings with their legs. They seized it.
