Paradise Travel Guide: 9 reviews and 15 photos

Paradise is an area accessed by driving 20 km northwest of Glenorchy.
It lies beside the Dart River offering picture-perfect views of the Humboldt Range and Mt.Earnslaw, but was named for the local paradise ducks rather than the idyllic scenery. The road passes a tranquil lake and enters a sub-alpine forest dripping with moss. A short walk from the road takes you to a lovely waterfall.

The Paradise area is known for its stunning scenery with farmland, burns and forests forming a dramatic backdrop to the mountains of Mount Aspiring National Park.
It was used during the filming of Lord of the Rings for Lothlorien, Amon Hen, Nan CurunĂ­r (the Valley of Saruman), Isengard

We drove from Queenstown to Glenorchy to Paradise and then as far as the road went.
I felt so humble being in the presence of such beautiful scenery - stormy skies, snow-capped mountains, green paddocks.
