Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The bras have been moved since our last visit to a fence on the other side of the carpark. Last time we were distracted and missed the distillery visit - this time we made it. It's interesting that so many women are prepared to dump their bras there. I saw on the Aussie show "Travel Guides" that two of the ladies removed theirs on the spot when the visited - not a pretty sight! But worth a giggle I guess

I wouldn't travel half a globe to see a fence with bras, but if you are passing by, stop for a few pictures. I didn't find any explanation about the origin of this place at the spot, neither on Wikipedia.
The fence is about 30 meters long, so don't expect too much. No tickets to see this place needed, this is a part of a parking lot at the alcohol factory near by.

BRADRONA ... make a donation, take a few photos for curiosity value, but then look up into the mountain directly BEHIND this area & see if you can spot the SHPG - Southern Hemisphere Proving Ground - for car testing. You will see some tracks/roadway etc but I'm told there is a tunnel up there for controlled car testing.

I saw a post that went viral, which was about this place. I thought to myself people are really crazy why would they do that? So then I looked up and got to know that its for a good cause and awareness of breast cancer. After that I obviously has to visit there. If you are on a road trip to Queenstown, it will be on the way.

Just down the road from the Cardrona Hotel is the famous (in New Zealand, anyway) Cardrona Bra Fence, where thousands of brassieres flap merrily in the breeze. It started as a lark during Christmas week in 1998, when four anonymously donated bras appeared on the fence; no way of knowing, but we'd bet alcohol was involved. Anyway, by February there were 60 bras on the fence and the local council had them removed. That, of course, started a cause celebre, and there was no stopping the phenomenon. Now the fence has become a fundraiser for breast cancer research, with a collection box for contributions. Many of the bras are remembrances of breast cancer victims, with their names inscribed.

Traveling from Arrowtown we stoped here. I don't know how much hanging bra and after rain and sun, stinky bra can help to anyone but there was donation box for Breast Cancer Foundation, which can surely help much more. Anyway it was interesting somehow.

The Bradrona is next door to the Cardrona Distilleryand last year it raised over $64K for NZ Breast Cancer Charity. If you visit this is pretty impressive. Leave a bra if you can but even better, make a donation for a very worthy cause.Thoroughly recommended.

A row of bras hanging on the fence, maybe not too special but unique idea, do not know who started this display. On the mid between Queenstown and Wanaka through Arrowtown, people usually do quick stop and take photos here, or some female visitors add another bras to the fence. For the good cause there is donation box for Breast Cancer Foundation.
