Glenorchy water front

Beautiful scenery at Glenorchy. Definitely worth the trip from Queenstown for a look, and walk around.

Good views

We saw some good views. For sure. The cost and ardor for those views, balancing out, not the best deal.

Beautiful

We had a lovely time visiting here today. It is a lovely spot at the end of the lake. There is plenty of free public parking. There are also good clean toilets.

Wanaka tree has competition

The Wanaka tree has competition, loads more trees here. A lovely walk waterside and good spot to sit and watch nature. Fantastic drive here and loads of parking available.

The most breathtaking drive
Oct 2020 • Friends
So glad that we drove out to Glenorchy from Queenstown. The drive & views are breathtaking and it’s easy to see why it’s consistently voted in the top 10 scenic drives in the world. It was quite windy when we arrived but the sun was shining & the town is very quaint & cute. Loved the low key & friendliness of the people and the waterfront/wharf area is super picturesque. Would highly recommend making the trip from Queenstown.

A Must-see when in Queenstown
Oct 2020
The drive going to Glenorchy from Queenstown is just 40 minutes. It is a lovely little town - quiet and reserved. I recommend anyone to surely visit this little town and have your photo taken from the famous Glenorchy house as well. But be sure to take the walk as well as it is stunning!

Absolutely beautiful
Oct 2020 • Couples
Glenorchy is a beautiful little town and the waterfront with the lake and mountain views was fantastic. It was a lovely sunny day although a few clouds and cold. The drive from Queenstown was just as stunning, well worth the one way in and one way out trip.
We had a cup of tea on the waterfront as it was the place for a relax and drink

The trip out was well worth it
Sep 2020 • Couples
Quite a winding road out from Queenstown, but oh my the scenery was beautiful. The snow capped mountains in the neck round of every pic was a bonus. Not much to do in Glenorchy except walk and admire the scenery. There is a nice little dumpling shop here with great food!

Beautiful photo opportunities

Worth the 30 min drive from Queenstown for the lake and mountain views even in the rain. We continued on to kinlock.

Just a stunning place in NZ
Jun 2020
Absolutely gorgeous stop - there is the shed just by the waterfront where many have taken a picture - then the vista of the three mountains together (which were in the hobbit movie) just a stunning place in NZ - turn left from the drive from Queenstown once you enter the town.
