great trip out on the TSS Earnslaw
Apr 2021
A beautiful Lake and a great trip on the Earnslaw - I liked the museum onboard detailing the history of lake Wakatipu and the views of the steam engines, great scenery and a cafe on board with lovely warming hot drinks and food, well worth the trip

Stunning views

This is such a beautiful area and such stunning views from every corner of the lake. Great views to take in from any of the wonderful cafes near the lakefront or the great walk through Queenstown gardens. Plenty of options to see it all from the water too for a different view.

We could not get enough of this view, it is a true eye feast. Everything is perfect, pretty, and clean. The water is crisp, clear, and cool and there is so much to do in, and on the lake.

Feeding the Ducks - Best Fun we had in Queenstown!
Mar 2021
We did not like Queenstown at all...

Stupid prices asked by everyone everywhere.

We found ourselves with spare Bread and went down to Lake Wakatipu and the Ducks were very happy to see is and eat out of our hands...

Cost = Zero Enjoyment & Fun - 100%

We spent our Tourist dollars at The Warehouse and Pak n Save - the End!!

PHENOMENAL BLUE LAKE.
Mar 2020
Lake Wakatipu is an Inland lake with stunning views surrounded by mountains and its highlight of Queenstown. Phenomenal crystal clear blue lake.

Always a great day out strolling along Lake Wakatipu. There's a hive of activity happening on the lake, shopping options close by and I especially like the multiple languages being spoken among the people.
