How lucky we are to have such scenic routes as this. Fabulous views with spots off road to stop and admire the view and take enviable photos to show your friends. First class road all the way.

The scenery was breathe taking. The drive was a little challenging but not too bad. The best part was getting away from the madding crowd in Queenstown and into a NZ that I thought was gone.

Nice little old village by the lake, with small shops, coffee shops and restaurants, a short drive from Queenstown.

The scenery on this drive is stunning-with the lake and river on one side ,the view towards the snow capped mountains is breathtaking.On arrival in Glenorchy there are trails for walking and riding and a few quaint cafes for lunch.Worth the trip!

Travel to Glenorchy, then Paradise, then keep going till the road runs out. A 4X4 is recommended. There are (long) walks from the end of the road.
