Boat Tour
d36***08A half-day tour of the lake by steamboat + Walter Plateau Ranch tour is a beautiful experience that is fresh in the memory of the Queenstown trip. From Queenstown Port to the Ranch Wharf, the steamboat takes 45 minutes one-way, a total of 1.5 hours round-trip voyage, and boat viewing. One is to watch the ancient style of the ship. The steamship TSS Earnslaw, built in 1912, has been baptized by wind and waves for more than a hundred years. It has grown stronger and stronger over time. It is the only coal-fired steamship still in normal operation in the southern hemisphere. Wandering on the boat, looking at the handsome captain at the helm, watching the young fireman swinging a shovel to deliver coals, listening to the melodious music of the teacher's nai luthier, and tasting the authentic taste of coffee and desserts. It is leisurely and comfortable. The second is to appreciate the beautiful scenery of the lake. On the deck, in front of the portholes, and in the corridors, you can admire the scenery of Lake Wakatipu up close. The lake breeze is blowing, the waves are dancing happily, the scenery is charming and refreshing.

M48***13Glenorchy in Queenstown is a small town with very beautiful scenery. It is located on the edge of the lake, with large green spaces and one colorful wooden house. It seems that everything is so peaceful, natural, and here. The air is exceptionally fresh and it is definitely a good place for life.
