We stopped in Wanaka along the way where we had a drink looking over the lake in the beautiful sunshine bliss!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We arrived in Queenstown that evening and found our accomodation Queenstown lodge which we also recommend for its very helpful staff and beautiful rooms overlooking the lake. Next day we drove out to Glenorchy where we had lunch lovely and sunny. We went up in the gondolas to the viewing point it had a beautiful view of the town and surroundings. The drink up there also tasted great because the sun was shining it was fantastic. Discoverel an Irish bar there call Pog Mahones the guinness was great (Mick) the food was good too.
