Lake Wakatipu, Queenstown.
The most scenic drive in the region, driving the Glenorchy Road is an absolute must-do. Though you may not want to do it the way we chose to do on a few occasions. As heading along the road in our previous 10.5m motorhome required more nerve and skill than driving a car. As this 45-minute journey takes you along the edge of Lake Wakatipu, through native Beech Forest, past steep rocky cliffs and delivering exceptional views of the Southern Alps.
Heading down the road by car is preferable as you may want to pull over and stop for a minute to appreciate the beauty, one, in particular, is the Bennett’s Bluff lookout, which is glaringly apparent when you come across it. The view opens up to the top of the lake. Across Pigeon Island and up to Earnslaw Glacier in the distance, the gateway to the Mount Aspiring National Park.
Does it get any better than this? Perhaps, after all, there are some beautiful spots in this world we live in.
Are you up to the challenge? Can you think of something “on top”?
