Queenstown and Arrowtown

Our final week of our New Zealand trip, we decided to spend a week in Queenstown. We loved the vibe last time we visited so it only seemed appropriate to end our trip there.

Queenstown, New Zealand

We caught up with our work, staying with Elements Escape where they have a great selection of accommodations.

Arrowtown

There are so many great towns around Queenstown to discover, but the most popular one people know would be to visit Arrowtown. If you’re going to New Zealand around Autumn, Arrowtown is one of the most beautiful places to visit. The town is so warm and vibrant with different coloured trees surrounding the area.

You can easily spend a good few hours around the area, and one of the ‘must-do’ things to do is grab a pie from Arrowtown Bakery & Cafe.

One of the best lamb and mince pies I’ve had. Joe had a Thai curry chicken pie which was also full of flavour.

The last stretch of driving was from Queenstown to Christchurch, in time for our flight back to Australia to say our final goodbyes before we head back to the UK.

Spending six weeks in New Zealand has been one of the highlights of living in the Southern Hemisphere. We’ve covered so much of New Zealand, we still find it unbelievable that we’ve travelled that much of the country. Feeling slightly embarrassed, we’ve not done the same back in the UK, but have inspired us to really think about seeing the UK more once we’re back later on this year.
