Ultimate Queenstown

Glenorchy

The jewel at the top of the lake, Glenorchy sits to the North West of Queenstown just 45 minutes drive along Lake Wakatipu's most scenic drive. Home of the Dart River, Paradise and movie sets like Lord of the Rings, Glenorchy is the gateway to Mount Aspiring National Park and famous Routeburn Track. Any local will tell you that Glenorchy is an absolute "Must See" on your visit to Queenstown.
