One of the best thing when talking about Queenstown, you can not miss the mighty Lake Wakatipu. The lake is shaped like a lighting and it’s the longest lake in New Zealand.
ones you head into Queenstown, you can see Lake Wakatipu straight away. However, the best way to see its full glory, you have to take the scenic route around the lake.
Bob’s cove is a 15 minutes drive, north of Queenstown and its a must stop for your way to Glenorchy. Of cause you can also stop at Bennett’s Bluff lookout, but you will encounter some tourist there.
Glenorchy is the located at the tip of the lake, it’s a small settlement but there is cafes and pub for you to seat down and relax and enjoy the epic view.
