Town in Queenstown Lakes District
Glenorchy 9372, New Zealand
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.
