Around Queenstown

South Island

On 15th we drove to a few different vineyards on the outskirts of queenstown in the Gibbston valley (on the road out to Cromwell).
We found most of these wineries only sell wine to take away rather than to sit in and drink so we bought a bottle and found a nice place to park along the Crown Range road with beautiful views. We stayed here for the night.
16th was Chris’ 30th birthday! We drove to Arrowtown which is a small town outside of queenstown famous for gold mining and we also went to Lake Hayes. We both loved Lake Hayes and said it would be a lovely place to live.
We found a winerie called the wet jacket which had a bar and outside area where we had a couple of glasses of wine and some food.
We stayed at the bungee jump car park this night as we needed to be up early in the morning for some casual work nearby.

On Thursday/Friday and Saturday night we worked at the Gibbston Valley Summer Concert, setting the stage up and putting it away once it was finished.

On Saturday day time we went back to Lake Hayes and walked all the way round it.

After work on Saturday evening we made our way to Cromwell as we were due to start work at a vineyard in Alexandra (near Cromwell) on Monday. We camped out next to the Clutha River.
