Bad mountain range based puns aside, the view from the top of Queenstown Hill is pretty amazing. There are several little hills you can climb — it’s quite a big area and there didn’t seem to be one main viewpoint. The Queenstown Hill hike is renowned for having some of the best views of Lake Wakatipu and the Remarkables, and it definitely lives up to the hype. Hiking to the summit requires a bit of effort but most people should be able to handle it. It took me just over two hours (including quite a long detour), so it won’t put too much of a dent in your day.

The hike up Queenstown Hill is a rather steep and physically demanding one, which could leave you feeling breathless, but all you have to do is bite the bullet and you’ll be handsomely rewarded with glorious, breathtaking views of Queenstown and Lake Wakatipu right at the top. I highly recommend this hike as Queenstown Hill is located right in the heart of the city and it takes all but 2-3 hours to complete the hike.

Another 30 minutes of hiking (and listening to the podcast) later we arrived at the upper lookout. It wasn’t as high as we expected, but it’s nevertheless an awesome viewpoint. We found ourselves a nice spot on the rocks to enjoy the view over the mountain walls with a couple of waterfalls, the valley, and the Rob Roy Glacier (duh!). If you have some patience, you might see some snow or ice fall down. I know we did! Too bad there was fog (or clouds?) hanging over the glacier.

AJ Hackett Bungy Kawarau Bungy Centre Attraction

  • 2017-11-10 03:52:43+00:00
Didn't plan to do the jump, happens to pass by and saw 50% discount; why not? It's like roller coaster, except that you have to jump. A girl before us chicken out at the last minute, I decided we have to jump at the first attempt or else I might chicken out as well. One, Two, Bungee! My heart almost pop out and I close my eyes, only opening it after the first bounce. I am pretty sure I won't try it again 😓😓😓 本没打算做只笨猪,刚好路过有名的笨猪跳圣地,又刚好有50%折扣,就笨笨的上钩了。我们前面有个女的临阵退缩,我就下定决心数完就跳,不然夜长梦多。笨猪跳就好像坐过山车,怕得要死,更惨的是还要自己跳。One,Two,Bungee,死死脚软也要向前冲,还好两人一起。跳了,还是很怕,闭上人眼睛,直到弹了一下才定下心打开眼睛。有些笨笨的事,做一次就好了😓😓😓

The track is well marked till the Ben Lomond Saddle. After that orange poles disappear. You just make your way to the top. Ben Lomond Track goes through the forest than passing Skyline Gondola upper station the view opens and there is nothing more than little shrubs and tussocks.

In the end the hike up to the summit looked worse from below than it actually was, and the extra hour turned out to be more than worth it. The 360 degree views from the summit were pretty great.

It's a nice blue pool if you plan to take a dip, else the sandflies just occupy you. 小蓝池的确清澈又漂亮,有人从吊桥上跳水;不游泳就没啥么做,沙蚊也很多。

We found one of the last few spots to park our car (it was crowded even on a weekday in March) and crossed the highway to get on the other side, where the entrance of the Blue Pools is located. There is a clearly marked pathway that leads to a swing bridge where the actual pool is. We walked for about 20 minutes (starting from the entrance) to get to the swing bridge. I was wearing a t-shirt that day, and people coming back from the track were giving me weird looks, almost as if they were hinting something at me. Later, I would understand why this was the case. The Blue Pools and Haast pass area in general is filled with sandflies. They swarm all over you and bite. So, I had to pull on my jacket to keep those sandflies at bay. Amazingly, they still bit us on whatever skin they could find, forehead, neck, etc. My advice to you is apply sandfly/insect repellant before you go to this place.

The Diamond Lake track was a beautiful spot for me to go for a quick summer evening hike, or for a longer one if I had an afternoon off. It doesn’t take all that long and the payoff for the amount of effort you put in is very high!

  • 2014-04-29 00:00:00+00:00
The surrounding landscape was once again breath-taking, and huge! We climbed a little further up the bluff to an area that gave us 270 degree views out over the farmland below to Lake Wanaka, Roys Peak & Glendhu Bay beyond.

From the pier we drove to the town centre, a short walkable distance away. Glenorchy has a small population of 500 but it attracts holiday makers from all over who have come to bask in its tranquil beauty. There are a few hotels, a few restaurants, a few cafes and bars but no fashion boutiques or supermarkets.

From there, we went to a place called Paradise and I have to agree that it was. The Glenorchy to Paradise road travels through at patches of red beech forest. These beautiful areas were used as filming locations for Lothlorien in the Lord of the Rings.

1. 由於整座山都是牧場,在綿羊繁殖季節(每年10月1日~11月10日),步道會因此封閉。詳細情形請洽詢Wanaka DOC 2. 步道上並無提供飲水或食物,登山時請務必備妥個人補給。步道上唯一的廁所位於具離停車場200公尺處。 3. 夏季登山旺季時,停車場可能會非常擁擠,可考慮搭乘替代交通接送,或步行前往登山口。

The recommended time to complete the hike is 5 to 7 hours. It is a steady 1300 meter climb to the top, steep in some places, with very few flat or downhill sections. The higher you go the better the views get. It took us four and half hours total to do the hike, including a stop for lunch and a stop for photos. We did not go all of the way to the peak. Higher than the point where we took our family photo the mountains were completely hidden in the clouds. Other hikes who went higher advised us that there was zero visibility higher up on the mountain.

Moke Lake is surrounded by mountains and you get great views regardless of where by the water you choose to rest. It’s safe for swimming and after a few minutes in the hot sun I very much cursed myself for not bringing my bikini! If water activities are your thing it’s a great place to SUP or kayak, just watch out for duckling swimming amongst the reeds.

↑走在上山的路上,沿路都可以邊看著山下的瓦納卡, 跟我自己本身在台灣爬山經驗很不一樣 (好~其實我也只是在新竹的十八尖山飛鳳山走走而已) 怎麼不一樣的感覺呢? 就是沿路都有一旁開闊的視野 其實走累了 就站在石頭路旁看看這片風景..... 很賞心悅目呢!!

This farm was initially not on our radar- who goes to Wanaka to see a lavender farm? However, if you have time to spare and would like to see some lavender (check whether they are opened on their website, their shops are closed on certain months), give this place a go where you get to relax and unwind.

This is an amazing track due to the season, still some snow near the peak but not too much, mixing up with the bushes to create an illusion of poka dots mountain. Absolutely gorgeous. 蛮有挑战性的一座山。山上有点积雪,加上有本的草丛,变成了斑点山。非常漂亮,非常壮观。

Isthmus Peak is memorable thanks to these views, but, for me, I can’t help but also instantly think of the variety of terrains this hike leads you on. There’s everything from grass to fine soil to rocks – hence my warning about bringing along good, sturdy shoes. Also, once you leave the sheep and paddocks behind, this is when Isthmus Peak becomes a lot more challenging. Expect steep gradients and long, long (LONG) uphills. I used to hike a lot with my Dad when I lived in South Africa, and I haven’t taken on a hike as challenging as Isthmus Peak since those regular hiking days.

There are lots of hikes in the Queenstown area, most of which feature mountain views as their biggest hook. Bob’s cove is different. This lush green landscape features several stunning lake beaches, paths lined with native forest and a couple of atmospheric ruins. Oh, there are also some incredible mountain views — this is Queenstown after all!

The Lake Alta Track starts at the Remarkables Ski Field near Queenstown, New Zealand. I walked around 6 kilometres including my aimless wondering around the lake. I used a brochure ‘Wakatipu Walks’ that I picked up from the DOC office in Queenstown and that, along with my GPS maps was enough for this well marked route. I’d rate this walk as easy, although there is a bit of climbing involved. The walk is in an alpine area so come prepared for dodgy weather.

When we thought that the views could not get any better, we were surprised. Andy took us to another spot on the other side of the hilltop, where the rocks are in the shape of an armchair. There is a big concave crevice in one of the rocks where you can sit and rest your arms on. You actually feel as if you are sitting on an armchair, but with the most incredible view of Lake Wanaka. The rock is naturally shaped in such a way. Just amazing!

It is around 20 kms from Wanaka, which is far too far to kayak. You can do guided tours but they costs $150 to $200 a head. We just arranged a boat trip out and back for $400 in total which worked out excellent value.
