d36***08A half-day tour of the lake by steamboat + Walter Plateau Ranch tour is a beautiful experience that is fresh in the memory of the Queenstown trip. From Queenstown Port to the Ranch Wharf, the steamboat takes 45 minutes one-way, a total of 1.5 hours round-trip voyage, and boat viewing. One is to watch the ancient style of the ship. The steamship TSS Earnslaw, built in 1912, has been baptized by wind and waves for more than a hundred years. It has grown stronger and stronger over time. It is the only coal-fired steamship still in normal operation in the southern hemisphere. Wandering on the boat, looking at the handsome captain at the helm, watching the young fireman swinging a shovel to deliver coals, listening to the melodious music of the teacher's nai luthier, and tasting the authentic taste of coffee and desserts. It is leisurely and comfortable. The second is to appreciate the beautiful scenery of the lake. On the deck, in front of the portholes, and in the corridors, you can admire the scenery of Lake Wakatipu up close. The lake breeze is blowing, the waves are dancing happily, the scenery is charming and refreshing.
M48***13The Kawarau River is a famous river in the mouth of the Yellow River. The water of this river is very blue and clear. There are many natural beauty along the river. There are also many tourist experience projects on this river, such as the bridge jump lock and the card Warau and rafting are both very good options, you may wish to experience the river
DJDQThe extreme sports you must experience when you come to New Zealand! Adrenaline soaring! With the mentality of having to experience it once in my life, I gritted my teeth and jumped down hahaha. We must weigh ourselves before jumping. New Zealand beef, lamb chops and salmon are so delicious that they are five kilograms fatter than when they started. . . You can purchase pictures or videos after the jump. They are expensive, but they are also a commemorative. There will also be a T-shirt printed with a 43-meter bungee jump, and a free shuttle bus to Queenstown will be provided as a souvenir.
Herman_travellerI visited Queenstown for 5 days and wandered around the lake every day happily. it's a very beautiful and peaceful lake with many ducks and seagulls and people like to gather there in the evening.
I stayed at Kinross Winery for a night, woke up in the morning, frozen and heart-wrenching, and there was a fog in the distance. I thought it was the steam of the river, and I saw a vineyard covered with frost.
In this high-altitude area, the winter is cold, the summer is hot and dry, and the temperature difference between day and night makes the world's top wines, especially Pinot Noir.
Otago's winery is dizzying, and it is not disappointing to pick a bottle. Unfortunately, the shipping cost to the country is more expensive than the wine itself, or it is good here.
Queenstown is the world's capital of adventure because it is the birthplace of bungee jumping. In 1988, the Kawarau Bridge opened the history of this extreme sport. Jumping down from a 43-meter-high bridge has become an honor, attracting adventure lovers from all over the world.
After years of exploration, the sport has become extremely mature, and there has never been an accident in Kawarau. The staff can adjust the length of the rope according to individual needs, so that the challenger can choose not to touch the river, part of the body contact. The river water and even the entire body completely enter the river. The large screen of the
bungee center keeps playing a bloody video, and even opens up a viewing platform with excellent visibility, allowing visitors to watch these dazzling warriors up close.
For the elderly who are eager to move, the bungee center has also opened up a sport suitable for them - Kawarau ropes, watching them fly like a superman over the river, the audience applause thunder, they seem to be back in time for 30 years, The expression of satisfaction is self-evident.
Gibston Valley Winery is only half an hour's drive from Queenstown, the central Otago region is the southernmost latitude grape growing region of the world and one of the top five wine producing regions in the world.
There is a mountain surrounded by mountains, the geographical environment and climate are very suitable for the growth of grapes, so the Pinot Noir produced here has a very high reputation.
We arrived at the winery and signed up for a local wine tasting tour. The guide first took us to visit the Pinot Noir vineyard, telling the history of the cultivation of organic grapes, and then entering the wine cellar, each with a vintage The label, there is also a room dedicated to the aged wine. While listening to the guide, we explained how the award-winning red wine is processed and brewed, while the famous Pinot Noir wines.
In this high-altitude area, the winter is cold, the summer is hot and dry, and the temperature difference between day and night is huge, but it creates the top wines that are internationally respected. This wine tasting experience is rare.
Gibbston is a relatively mature tourist wine cellar, the size of the vineyard is large, and the wine production is also large.
If it's just wine tasting, it only costs 5 SGD. We want to enter the cellar restaurant, so we signed up for the 40-minute wine cave tour.
We and a few Europeans and Americans were brought to the vineyard by a staff member. They introduced New Zealand's soil, planted varieties, and grape characteristics, and then went into the mysterious cave wine cellar. This small cave contains a collection of wines produced in each vintage. The value of thousands of bottles cannot be measured. So also in the iron fence all year round, we can only look through the gap. In the deepest part of the cave, wine tasting begins. We tasted 3 white wines, 2 red wines and one ice wine. All are delicious. If you taste it, you can go out and buy it at the front desk. The business here is really big, and it can be mailed to various countries in the world, but the postage is self-paying.
In addition to the wine cellar, there are several other places to visit, vineyards, restaurants, food stores and souvenir shops.
Especially in the food store, you can buy a lot of local cheese, local honey. We bought 2 large bottles of honey.
