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.

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 trail is very wide, well groomed, and is fairly easy walking. Unfortunately this also means you are unlikely to ever find yourself alone. As much as I hate crowds and groups of tourists, the 20 minute walk to the falls is worth the effort (or lack thereof).

Devils Punchbowl Falls is a powerful beauty that drops 131 meters (430 feet). Water pinches through a cataract at the top of the waterfall, tumbles down a couple steps, and fans out to a width of a few meters as it courses down a wall of dark rock. The canyon curls around the waterfall to give it an enclosed feel.

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.

Finally we round a corner, it looks like we’ve made it – the trees have gone, it’s just grass and a bulge in front of us. I’m videoing as we emerge into the open, we’re not sure but we think we’re here – we’re certainly over half way according to the GPS. The view is – well, it’s cloud – and our elation at reaching the top is well concealed. And there’s no sign of Arnaud either.

Hokitika gorge walk – this is a beautiful walk which starts about a 30 minute drive south of Hokitika. It is signposted relatively well and the drive crosses farmland with views around. Once parked it takes 10-15 minutes to walk through to the gorge – including crossing a 6-person swing bridge. When we were there we didn’t see anyone else and had it all to ourselves! On reaching the end of the walk we were greeted with the beautiful views through the gorge. Despite the fact the weather wasn’t perfect and the water wasn’t the colour it could be it still looked beautiful. We really enjoyed the peace and tranquility of this area.

It’s an impressive landscape, and it’s framed beautifully by the surrounding mountains. You’ll see a sign pointing to a viewpoint of Lake Marian, and it’s worth the short detour. It’s the upper-most part of the Key Summit Track and the views over Mount Christina (and a barely visible Lake Marian) are pretty special. The Loop track continues past another viewpoint and then heads back down the hill towards the car park. There are lots of places to sit and relax at Key Summit and it’s the perfect place to rest and eat that delicious lunch you packed (if you planned ahead like we did).

We moved quickly and quietly and were able to get a few shots, while keeping well clear of the penguin as per the guideline provided by the Department of Conservation. Sadly, this was the best shot I could get from the distance, as it was taken back in 2010, before I upgraded my camera.

The reason for the waterproof footwear is that there’s ankle-deep, freezing water that you have to walk through in the tunnel. I had brought flip flops for the tunnel since my hiking shoes aren’t waterproof, and I only made it about a minute into the tunnel before I decided it wasn’t worth it because my feet were cold to the point of stinging. I spoke to a few other people who went in far enough to see a few glow worms and they said it was about 1.5-2 mins into the tunnel that they saw them. They said there may have been more further in the tunnel but they didn’t keep going because the water was too cold to continue walking in.

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.

The lagoon is always changing and moving so the bridge is to enable access to continue up the beach should the lagoon be flowing out to sea.

It’s not what I would describe as difficult, but the majority of the Lake Marian Track heads steadily uphill. It gets a little tiring but most people should be able to handle it. It’s not a particularly exciting section of track either as it very rarely leaves the cover of the forest. There are lots of tree roots and boulders to climb over and some patches of mud to navigate. Keep going though, as you’re about to see something pretty special.

Eventually the trail comes out at Bain Bay. This is a secluded DOC camping and picnic area. Stephen tells me it is a very popular camping spot at New Year. The boaties drop their camping gear off and set up for a bbq in the evening to watch the new year in. I guess those keen enough can hike in with their gear but boating it in sounds like a good idea to me! There are some old relics at this end of the trail also – left over from the timber milling days.

All the area around Mitchells and Bain Bay has been extensively logged. The entire area is littered with relics from that era. After cutting down the (mainly) rimu trees, they floated them across the lake to the mill.

This track short and sweet. There is a river, some bushes and we can see two snow caps thanks to the sunshine which suddenly appear during noon. If you walk slightly further up beyond the avalanche sign, there are plenty of buttercups flowers along the river. Met a couple who track all the way up for another hour and saw a small glacier. This is our last hike for our New Zealand trip. 最后一次纽西兰南岛游的徒步行,这步道虽短但蛮有特色:有河流,有草丛,看见白色山顶,也有很多很漂亮的百花。
