We spent the morning in Wanaka – Janetta went for a walk along the water and I relaxed on the beach with a good book.
Then it was time to move on to Queenstown. One of our shorter drives (only about an hour), the views were spectacular.
As soon as we got to Queenstown we checked in, got lunch, and met up with a Lord of the Rings tour (I know, I know, another LOTR tour). This one took us to Glenorchy and Paradise, which includes locations such as Lothlorien, Mordor, Edoras and more.
And of course there were hobbit cloaks and swords available.
After the tour we got some ice cream and walked around the lake before heading back to the hostel.
We’re going to Milford Sound tomorrow, so that’s going to be an early start and a late end.
