Last week Bianca and I where in Queenstown on annual leave for the week, you may remember a few years ago we drove around the South Island and we always said we should spend a week in Queenstown because of the beautiful landscape, food, people and the environment. For those who have never been I highly recommend it.
We spent most of our time in Queenstown we also took a few days trips to Lake Te Anau, Glenorchy and Arrowtown.
Arrowtown is an old gold mining town about 20 or so minutes from Queenstown. Home to some great watering holes, restaurants and lollie shops. We spent most our time walking up Tobins Track to get a vantage point of the town.
Our journey to Lake Te Anau wasn’t as productive as we would have hoped, we were booked into a tour of the Glow Worm Caves and sadly the caves were flooded with the amount of rain the South Island has had over the past few weeks, so we grabbed some Gluten Free burgers a cider and enjoyed the landscape.
For those with food allergies/intolerances Queenstown is certainly a food friendly place, I was blown away with the amount of Gluten Free and Dairy free options that cafes, bars, pubs and restaurants offered. I would have struggled to find a place that didn’t offer a meal to suit my dietary needs.
