We stayed in their Lakefront apartments, a stunning location directly overlooking the water in the very heart of Queenstown but were also entitled to use all the facilities of the hotel including breakfast and evening drinks in the famous Eichardt'd bar. Our apartment was spacious and very comfortable in every way. Having been on the road for a week already we were delighted to have a washing machine and drier in the kitchen area. Over in the bar the staff were all friendly, professional and extremely efficient. A wonderful place to stay in Queenstown.

... headed into Queenstown and decided to go up the gondola. We've been waiting for a good day to go up here, it definitely wouldn't have been the same if it was raining. We enjoyed the view once we got to the top as we could see down over Queenstown and lake Wakatipu. We had some lunch, then headed for the luge.

Afterwards, I had to ...
... knew we would have to make several river crossings and the first crossing was upon us within the first 5 minutes of hiking. We swapped our hiking shoes for our water shoes and crossed the shallow part of the river.
The water was COLD, but it was a short crossing and it was actually quite refreshing. We dried our feet and changed back into our hiking shoes, but not more than a minute of hiking, we had to change out our shoes again for another ...
... Hollyford Valley and surrounds. However, with the fog now quite thick, we could not even see the start of the track let alone imagine what the views might have been like, or not, so opted to keep going and enjoy an early arrival at our last lodge for the trip. It was a one hour steep side trip and we were glad we had made the decision not to go when we heard reports later of people coming down the steep bits on their bottoms - not my kind of walk!
Leaving the lunch hut ...
... motorway - or was. They were hunted down to low numbers in the past and are slowly recovering. There have been about 75 people who have managed to swim the Strait - the youngest being 11, fastest swim 4 hrs 35mins, which seems incredible to me.
We arrived in Picton, South Island and picked up our new hire car (electric blue, V6 with a spoiler again - what is going on?) planning to head West towards the Abel Tasman National Park for our next (three day) trek. ...
