Rees Valley


We only made it out towards Glenorchy today. We stopped there for coffee then drove around to Kinloch where we climbed the treehouse, threw rocks into the lake and river and played on the beach. We picked up a couple of British blokes needing a ride. They had just finished the Routeburn and Greenstone Tracks and had a long, long trek back to their car at the head of the Routeburn Track. We drove them all the way to their car. After a toilet break we drove out on an out-of-the-way road up the Rees Valley which turned out to be spectacular. We then walked quite a distance on the Rees/Dart Track. Not another soul in sight. Bliss.

It is now 5pm and we are headed back to our house to eat dinner. More adventures tomorrow.




Day 5 Glenorchy, Arrowtown, Queenstown



Above photo is on the road to Glenorchy from Queenstown.

Today we plan to see Glenorchy, Arrowtown and then some things around Queenstown. We actually had a minute of sunshine, the first we have had since we landed here. It is sprinkling rain. I can live with that.

We went shopping last night at New World. Instead of spending so much money on going out for meals we can cook some at the house.
