One of the must punch cards from Wanaka to Queenstown is the underwear wall.
In the South Island of New Zealand, there is a fence at the famous Bra Fence (underwear wall) in Cardrona. The fence is covered with tens of thousands of women's underwear. The wall is between Queenstown and Wanaka. There are two roads in the basin, one is Highway 6, which passes through Cromwell, the fruit city, which takes about 1.5 hours, and the other is Crown Ridge Road. It takes about 1 hour by car.
In 1999, four women hung their bra on the barbed wire on the side of the road on a whim. Later, many people saw it and hung it up, so more and more bras became the current bra wall. Someone couldn't bear to steal, and all the bra disappeared overnight. But no one thought that it was because of "stealing" bra that the underwear wall began to be officially famous. Every time the underwear on the fence is stolen → media reports → increased attention → usher in more underwear being put on.
By the end of 2000, the number of bras had increased to 200, and then they were emptied again. This time the story spread more widely, and the fence attracted foreign media attention, and finally transformed into a world-class tourist attraction. The number of people going to the fence to hang bras in person or by sending people has increased significantly. At the beginning of 2006, the number of bras was close to 800. Coupled with the help of social media, it has become a veritable Internet celebrity "spot".
Starting in 2015, a charity project named Bradrona was launched to raise donations for breast cancer charity organizations.
As a result, a donation box with a pink bow logo was placed on the side of the underwear wall, and on the first day, it received nearly 200 dollars in donations.
In fact, in 2006, the local council believed that this place could not be regarded as a formal attraction, and that it would cause traffic problems and be unsightly, so it ordered the local area to be removed as soon as possible! Unexpectedly, many residents and tourists stood up to protect the fence, hoping that the authorities would not remove this interesting attraction. Later, the opposition was successful, and the bra wall has been successfully preserved to this day.
The women who come here will take off their underwear from their bodies and hang them on the wire fence. They think that wearing the hood all the year round binds the body and will get some diseases. They come here and want to free themselves and liberate their bodies. Call for the prevention and treatment of breast cancer and care for women.
But I'm not so courageous anymore. I just came to visit and didn't dare to let myself go like this.
I went there in June of 2018. It was winter and it snowed the day before and blocked the road. I was lucky to go there that day. The road was opened. Next to the underwear attraction is a century-old hotel. Going forward is Guanfu Mountain. There are many sheep in the pasture. The underwear attraction is just at the fence of the farm on the side of the road. Checking in the attraction is nothing special.
From Wanaka to Queenstown on the Crown Mountain Highway, I arrived at this peculiar attraction in a little over half an hour. The long iron railings are covered with bras of various colors, which is very spectacular. It is said that this bra wall was once opposed by local residents. It was dismantled, but soon someone put the bra on it again. This was repeated several times. Later, with the participation of the pink ribbon, this peculiar attraction was finally retained.
On the way from Queenstown to Wanaka, you will pass this small "attraction"
Because many women are famous for leaving their own Bras here, it is probably to liberate the female body [笑哭]
A small fence with all kinds of Bra is also quite spectacular
Um, I also took off my Bra and stayed in this foreign country hahaha
Self-driving on Crown Hill Road, New Zealand | Meet the Internet celebrity bra wall in southern New Zealand. There are two routes for self-driving from Queenstown to Wanaka. One is to take the highway to Cromwell Fruit Town, and the other is to take the crown range. rd), it is a higher altitude highway, passing the net red bra wall, because I have passed Cromwell on the way from tekapo to Queenstown, so I decisively chose to take the Crown Mountain Road, and the scenery on the way was good. Crown Hill Road stop point recommendation: Arrow junction lookout point A stop point on the crooked road on Crown Hill Road, overlooking the scenery below, is very spectacular. The crown range road scenic lookout is also a point that overlooks the scenery below, but here is a small hill. Taking pictures on the top of the slope is very large, but when the wind is strong, I feel like I’m going to be blown away and I’m standing on the hillside. Often very big. Cardrona bra fence net celebrity bra wall, the main purpose of taking the crown mountain road is to punch this bra wall, this bra wall is intended to let people increase the awareness and importance of breast cancer, care for women’s health, and now it is still on bra Write a wish and make a wish. I have to say that the bra size here is so big, it can be said to be a battlefield larger than the size. Haha Note for self-driving: Before traveling, many people will worry about the safety of driving on Crown Mountain Road, because the whole journey is a mountain road. A 180-degree turn, I want to say that it’s not as difficult to drive as described on the Internet. It’s nothing to drive slowly, and the speed limit on that section of the road is about 45-55. Everyone consciously slows down and follows the car ahead. Just drive slowly. If you have driven on a domestic mountain road, there is no need to worry about this mountain road at all. Just remember to slow down and drive carefully.
