"In Queenstown's backyard." New Zealand Off The Beaten Path Tip by worldkiwi
New Zealand Off The Beaten Path: 233 reviews and 269 photos
Despite the huge numbers of international visitors to Queenstown in South Island, few see the stunning Rees and Dart Valleys area around Glenorchy, up the coast from Queenstown. You really need a car to get there and explore the area, but it is well worth the effort for the amazing scenery. Some scenes from Lord of the Rings were filmed in this vicinity. See my Glenorchy page for a few more photographs.
