Sunshine Bay Track, Queenstown

A short walk/stroll along the foreshore of Lake Wakatipu, starting in Queenstown. It was a bit overcast and so drab on the day we did this, but there are classic views of the Remarkables and Cecil Peak along the way. And it’s almost flat, so one for the less energetic, or when you just want to stretch your legs after lunch in town.

Obvious track the whole way, except for the side trip to see the waterfall.

As regular visitors to Queenstown, someone thought fit to immortalise Sophia’s (Jung Lim in Korean) and my relationship in a suitably Australian looking tree.

The SS Earnslaw in front of the Remarkables. Looking a bit drab in overcast conditions, but it’s a nice view in clear weather and maybe a bit of snow.

A wine kombi. Nice.
