Rydges Lakeland Resort Queenstown
Here’s one of our top picks for things to do in Queenstown this Summer.
Trudie Clay looks after weddings and conferences at Rydges Lakeland Resort. She also gets out & about and is our guest blogger today!
When it comes to four-wheel driving (4WD), in the past I have been with Nomad Safaris. Having tried it a few times now I was keen for another round of the action. My friends decided to take a private vehicle out on the track so I went along to. I have to say that this was not the best idea! After the truck nearly went head first into the watery depths of a cave, I can now honestly say you should ALWAYS leave it up to the professionals!
However, that aside, we did discover a few great spots that you can request when you next book a 4WD tour. Macetown is a lovely wee place, a hot-spot for mining back in the day but also a film location for Lord of the Rings. There are definitely certain spots that die hard fans will be able to recognise. Nomad Safaris does a great 4WD trip there, crossing the water, seeing where LOTR was filmed and they even teach you how to gold pan!
We also checked out Glenorchy. I had never been here before and it is an amazing hidden spot. It has very beautiful scenery that is difficult to describe. I would recommend it as a MUST-SEE!
