Visited on Monday 7th May. It all happens here, shopping, restaurants and the starting place if you want to do a cruise on Lake Wakatipu. And of course a great place to take in the views of the lake and snow capped mountains.

Great fun, great weather, great crowd. Amazing place for photos or even just a stroll. Wide range of restaurants and bars, can even pick up a souvenir gift. We were lucky to have great weather and watched lots of outdoor entertainers

Good place to while away a bit of time, watch a few people. Lots of food and drink places. This, as the name suggests, is where the TSS Earnshaw ties up.

Here you have different restaurants and a casino, also dessert shops. The harbour view with the stunning mountain and lake view make everything just as an amazing picture to see. Very nice!
