Queenstown, NZ

Hiking near Queenstown

Amisfield Winery
Getting behind updating the blog with our New Zealand adventures.  Have been unpacking, doing laundry, catching up.  But enough of that.  Here are some picks of Queenstown, an outdoor-junky mecca in the south part of South Island.  We flew in and out of there from/to Sydney.  Stunning setting on a lake surrounded by mountains and a first-class wine region next door.  The first night we found a funky bar out in wine country, by a campground - seemed like a kiwi outpost from the 60s.  Had some beer and some great fish and chips.  Next day,  we went on a beautiful hike outside of town, and then went back to the wine region, to Amisfield Vineyard for a wonderful lunch, outside, gorgeous day, lavender nearby, great wine, of course.  Then took a drive to Glenorchy (see next post).
