Good drive over.

Hotel was lovely, we had our own little place with bedroom and lounge.

We took a trip to see the Glow Worms on the first day, boat to the other side of the lake then into some caves with underground rivers and waterfalls, that was something else.. We then got in a small boat and taken to the back of the caves to see the Glow Worms, it was like fairy lights everywhere, amazing.
The evening was spent in the Moose, got talking to some other travellers who are also doing a 2 year trip, turned into a late one.

Day 2 we were up early and off to Milton Sounds to see the Fjords, it rained quite heavy last night but the day turned out to be clear blue skies. The drive over took about 90 mins and was breathtaking! Mountains, waterfalls, lakes, rivers & glaciers, so beautiful. Took a walk around the Fjord and had lunch at the lodge.

At the time of writing this Cyclone Yasi is about to strike Whitsundays and Cairns, what is going on with the weather at the moment, it is so sad to hear all this devastation.

Quiet evening ready for our last stop tomorrow in Queenstown.
