Sheila & Terry's New Zealand special holiday travel blog

Queenstown was the busiest town we had seen in the south island.It was full of youngsters off the piste even though the piste were quite a way away. It is the only town we had seen that had lots of lights and was awake after dark! It seemed strange to see shops open at 9pm and people walking about. Normally if we went for a walk after our evening meal it was very quiet and there were only a few very low weak street lights occasionally around.

The road from Queenstown to Te Anau was straight and fast and the scenery quite barren.One part was called the red tuft grasses reserve and it certainly was that... red turf grasses for miles.

We liked Te Anau after Queentstown. It was a very clean, quiet little town on the edge of the largest lake in NZ Lake Te Anau around which we found a new track along which we cycled.It was peaceful after Queenstown.... and had a very good supermarket.
