  • Beautiful spot. Dirt road to drive in but our camper made it down fine. Worth the drive!
  • It’s hard to imagine that this place is so beautiful. A nice easy drive from Queenstown through beautiful rugged mountain pastoral scenery brilliant views across tranquil mirrors (I mean lakes). Very easy to miss so make a point of taking an hour or more for memories that will last a lifetime.
