Driving to Queenstown – New Zealand

Today we are heading from Milford Sound to Queenstown (arguably the most popular destination in New Zealand).

It rained overnight in Milford sound and we woke to what can only be described as THOUSANDS of waterfalls.

Don’t get lost!

 

It was dark by the time we arrived in Queenstown and checked into the park late as usual.

The staff at Queenstown Holiday Park are nothing short of fantastic.  They were such a help with figuring out where we were going the next day and even got us a bathtub for the kids!  The amenities are great too.  The kitchen and lounge/TV area was comfortable and spacious.  It was nice to get out of the camper to cook and eat.  We like the place enough to stay the second night too.
