Up early today, quick breakfast and trying not to feel nervous as we went to check in for our white water rafting trip on the 4/5 grade Shotover River. With an ominous S for Shotover written on our hands to send us in the right direction we boarded the minibus for the short ride to the rafting centre where we were kitted out with all the necessary …
We had to be up very early, if not bright, for our flight back to Invercargill. The weather was very hot and sunny as we left Stewart Island but as we descended into Invercargill it was grey and chilly looking, like another world. We returned to the car and had a short ride around Invercargill to see the sights before moving on. Not all that many …
Up early and delicious eggs benedict in the Eichardt's Bar before driving to Arthur's Point for a Jet Boat ride on the Shotover River. We were kitted out with big waterproof capes and life-jackets before we climbed aboard and Simon and I sat up front with the driver.

I'm still feeling a bit ill my cough as got more chesty and I'm drowning in snot but I thought a bit of fresh air might do me some good.

TravelPod Member ReviewsEichardt's Private Hotel Queenstown
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.
