Waterfalls, native birds and rock climbing – what more do you need in a day?
An adventure many years in the making – a challenge and its rewards
We had an amazing time in Wanaka, so much so we just want to go back immediately and stay there forever.
Back to Queenstown, three years after our last visit. This time we were only there to bookend 7 nights in Wanaka, but we still squeezed a lot in!
3 days on Cardrona was both enough (exhausting) and nowhere near enough (loved the place). Definitely looking forward to a return to the skifield in two years time!
Our next adventure is under a week away! Here’s what the plan is!
Another overnighter, another couple of walks, a range of new cafe’s to explore
An adventure we’ve waited YEARS to be in a position to actually do – finally on the cards!
The downside of camping in Autumn is that you have limited daylight hours.
We had a choice – first morning sun, or last afternoon sun – for our tent site. We opted for last afternoon sun. Which meant the inside of our tent was still cold (and the outside still damp), until the sun arrived around 11:30am. However, we also kept the sunshine until after 4pm. Other than one foggy morning and one breezy evening, we had still, calm, clear weather for 4 straight days.
Do everything, or do nothing. Taupo has you covered both ways, and with great summer weather, we enjoyed as much as we could!
