What You'll Get
Your half-day tour will begin with a pickup from central Queenstown from 10.40am. From here, you will head up the Crown Range road. As New Zealand's highest sealed road, the Crown Range is usually covered in snow in winter and boasts some incredible viewing platforms. You will step out and soak these up and grab a photo or three.
Heading down the Crown range to the Cardrona Valley there is a famous stop to make. Built in 1863 to service gold prospectors, offering them accommodation, and a place to stop and seek refreshment, is Cardrona Hotel. It is one of New Zealand's oldest pubs, and possibly the most well-known. Pop in and explore, and we'll shout you a beer or non alcoholic ginger beer to enjoy in the beer garden or by the fire.
Travel to Wanaka, historically used by Maori as a pathway to greenstone sites and later by goldminers, today Wanaka has branded itself as a lifestyle reserve, surrounded by huge mountains and massive glaciers. You will be lead to the Reflection Tree, which grows within the lake. No matter what season it is, this tree will always make for great photos.
Then, have one hour of free time to wander Wanaka at your whim, maybe you'll look around the shops, sit and have an icecream by the lake, or go for a walk along the lake path; the choice is yours. This is also a good time to grab some lunch at a nice local café.
Next you will be taken to the historic Arrowtown. The town was popular for gold mining in the 1860’s with gold prospectors traveling from both Europe and China to try their luck.
You'll walk among the tiny restored cottages of their settlement and wander down the main street of this exquisite little town with its charming historic buildings that will make you feel like you walked on to a movie set
You day will finish with a short scenic drive back to central Queenstown returning between 4.30 and 5pm
