Summary

The most scenic drive in the region, driving the Glenorchy Road is an absolute must do! This 45 minute journey takes you along the edge of Lake Wakatipu, through native Beech Forest, past steep rocky cliffs and delivers exceptional views of the Southern Alps...There are many places that you may want to pull over and stop for a minute to appreciate the beauty, one in particular is the Bennett's Bluff lookout, which is glaringly obvious when you come across it. The view opens up to the top of the lake, across Pigeon Island and up to Earnslaw Glacier in the distance, the gateway to the Mount Aspiring National Park. Does it get any better than this? Probably not, this is New Zealand in all it's glory
