with a detour to Lake Hawea,
then stopping over at Clyde to admire the hydro dam.....
Scrumptious lunch at Cromwell
A stroll along Arrowtown, former gold mining town about 20 mins drive from Queenstown. The town is still well preserved with beautiful character buildings along the main street. You can still enjoy the fun of gold panning here, and who knows you might just get lucky! I would have gone for it if I had some spare time to kill.
and reaching Queenstown at around 2pm. More about Queenstown next.
Meanwhile, here is a video clip from Clyde to Arrowtown. Enjoy!
