Went to Arrowtown and Glenorchy yesterday. Arrowtown is lovely and did a quick 5 km walk alongside the Arrow River, which is above. Lots of people out enjoying it.

Then headed back to Queenstown and down around Lake Wakatipu to Glenorchy.

Glenorchy itself. Not a lot to do here, but a few cafes and some great views. Worth a visit.

    Does it have to have cafes and a coffee culture ?. People don’t go to Glenorchy for an encore with Parnell or Wellington Central.
    A lot to do in Glenorchy with tramping,jet boating, fishing, hunting and lowering ones stress levels.
    A lot of South Islanders can entertain themselves in this environment.

    Ssshhhh! There aren’t many places left where we South Islanders can feel at home, the last thing we want is an infestation of leisured types.

    There is a great cafe in Glenorchy that had this amazing beetroot relish to go with your muffin. If DPF was adventurous he would have noticed the walkway by the top end of the lake with great lake and mountain vistas.

    Surprised Farrar got back into Queenstown, from Glenorchy.
    The place was gridlocked with back up car standstill most of yesterday, in from Glenorchy and out to South over Kawarau bridge.
    Campers were leaving the thunderstorms like blow flies from a dettol factory.

    The parking and traffic problem is a serious deficit to Queenstown.

    However the fishing is great. Even Australians are bringing in big trout and Salmon from the Rees river entry to lake

    Steve – no, no, not getting at Jaffas at all.

    My definition of leisure types is anyone who owns at least one smart casual outfit. Or the sort of women who take makeup on tramping trips. Them.
