AUSTRALIA | Mon, 1 May 2017 | By johnsteel | Views [524] | Comments [4]

We spent 3 weeks in NZ with Gaye and Bob Simpson mainly exploring the South Island. We experienced splendid unseasonable NZ weather. Little use for those thermals and fleeces. Stunning landscapes, the freshest and best seafood and friendly locals ... Read more >

NEW ZEALAND | Sat, 22 Feb 2014 | By clare-tamea | Views [418]

One of the experiences we had been looking forward to was to take a ride on the Shotover jet in Queenstown, and it certainly lived up to our expectations. We didn't want a better value scenic tour from one of the many competitors, we wanted the full-... Read more >

NEW ZEALAND | Tue, 18 Feb 2014 | By elizabethkfmurphy | Views [452]

While there may not be much to write I must start by telling you that Wanaka and Queenstown might be my favourite places in New Zealand. I know "don't be hasty master hobbit" but they were so nice! If I live anywhere in New Zealand ever it might be either ... Read more >

NEW ZEALAND | Tue, 16 Jul 2013 | By hannahhackett | Views [529]

Queenstown is a pretty cool place, sandwiched between lake and mountains with a relaxed vibe, we really enjoyed our few days there.  It helped that we were staying in a beautiful apartment with lake views, we actually ended up staying an extra night.... Read more >

Te Anau to Christchurch (RT part IV)

NEW ZEALAND | Sun, 26 May 2013 | By butterfly-freed | Views [1925]

They told me New Zealand was beautiful, but I never really understood just how incredibly beautiful it is. If I have to draw a parallel, driving from Te Anau up to Queenstown resembles driving around Lake Geneva in Switzerland. The scenery is dramatic ... Read more >

The long, summer days have come to an end. The clocks have gone back, the days are shorter and the town quiets down. The bathing suit clad backpackers have retreated from the lake and moved onto the next place. The foot paths through the parks carry ... Read more >

Queenstown and Wanaka-Sept 22, 2012

NEW ZEALAND | Sun, 23 Sep 2012 | By capecodkiwi | Views [493] | Comments [1]

This weekend, we went away to Queenstown and Wanaka.  After a long 3.5 hour boring drive, we arrived to the most beautiful city I have ever seen.  And to make the day even better, the sun was shining, the sky was blue, and it was 60 degrees!  Upon ... Read more >

The Southland

USA | Tue, 20 Mar 2012 | By nicholas_harrel | Views [507] | Comments [1]

Queenstown is an addictive place. I did stick around for a few days having a great time. In fact I spent a whole week wondering around town doing small stuff. My wonderful mother helped me by paying for me to go on a cruise to the Milford Sound. I unfortunately ... Read more >

Letting the New Zealand Light Shine In

NEW ZEALAND | Tue, 19 Jul 2011 | By lauren_watson | Views [3803] | Comments [6]

One of the things that makes New Zealand different from home is the light. It’s the way the sun shines, the shadows it casts, the different hues in the sky it creates. I walk to work in the morning and the sun is rising, shining brightly on Mt. Cecil ... Read more >

路尽头的秘密 [Glenorchy]

NEW ZEALAND | Thu, 14 Jan 2010 | By ying | Views [6557]

行程简要: 1.从Queenstown沿Wakatipu湖驾车至Glenorchy 2.徒步无敌金矿遗址 3.晚餐Glenorchy,吃了个巨大的鹿肉汉堡包,超好吃,推荐! 4.驾车从回Queenstown途中遇到美丽的日落之光 5.宿Queenstown 不得不再次提起,好的东西都是要付出努力才能得到的。就好像徒步登山虽然很累,但至今为止每次用辛苦换来的美丽风景总令人难以忘怀。 昨天我们在Queens Town的一家名叫Deco的小旅店落下了脚。说到Queenstown顺便堤一下它是个以冒险运动著称的湖边城市,如果要蹦极、跳伞、喷气船过峡谷,这里都是南岛首选之地。不过我们到是没有做冒险运动的打算,一是太贵,二是时间不够。因此接下来的三天,我们计划到城周边的景点享受自然风光,要用走的来慢漫欣赏大自然天成的美。 ...
