Walter Peak (Queenstown)March 25, 2016 in New Zealand ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C
Sheep time on the Walter Peak High Country Farm! An old steamship, the TSS Earnslaw, brought us over Lake Wakatipu. The weather was gloriously sunny and I enjoyed not having to drive for a change.
They didn't let me shear a sheep 🙁 but I helped feed the animals, saw the sheep dogs in action and watched a sheep shearing display. I also got yummy afternoon tea with scones and home-baked cakes.
My hostel in Queenstown is small but lovely Butterfli Lodge. The view from my room is amazing and I can't wait for the sunrise tomorrow morning. 😊

Now off to nurse my sandfly bites. These little buggers are everywhere and their bites itch worse than mosquito bites. No joking!Read more
