From Queenstown it is nice to take a day trip to Central Otago, past Lake Hayes to Arrowtown. Then drive through the vineyards of Central Otago .And then make a final stop at the Kawarau River with amazing aqua blue water and the original Bungy Bridge.

    Too bad about being the designated driver on a wine-tasting tour. But at least you could taste at the cheesery. Looks like a lovely area.

    What a delight to read about your adventures in Otago. You use the "extra" photos very well,and, as usual, your narratives are interesting, informative, and helpful. Thanks ever so much.

    Wonderful scenery. That's what we'd love to do, hire a motorhome and wild camp in N.Z. One of these days....... (What's the cost of living like?)

    Another lovely NZ page. They would have to pay me to bungy jump. Like the others, I'd rather watch & be entertained.
