Queenstown

A flying visit

We only had one full day in Queenstown, which was just enough for us as we weren't planning any of the adventure activities it is famous for. It would have been nice to have some time to go up to Glenorchy, or do a few of the walks that surround Queenstown.
Thankfully we got sunshine back again!
Our first trip was up the gondola, which actually wasn't as bad as I thought it might be as long as I looked forwards and not down! The views at the top were amazing and we even saw some people paragliding off the top! It made me want to do it!

We popped back for lunch and then we wandered along to the lakefront. It was very nice, and you could see how popular Queenstown is with young people! Best of all I liked the walk we did around the Queenstown gardens where it was much more peaceful.
