"Paradise" Paradise by TomorrowsAngel

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 Curunír (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.
