Te Anau and GlenorchyJanuary 15 in New Zealand ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C
Got up later as I was feeling a bit sniffley the night before.
Took a walk to Dock Bay over a hydro electric dam.
Nice hour long walk with a beach at the end.
Stocked up on some fizzy sweets and set off towards Glenorchy.
Arrived and got setup in a campsite. I wanted to have a look at a couple of lord of the rings filming sites, so we set off towards a place called Paradise.
Saw a tour bus dart off into the bushes so marked that in my head to come back to.
Great views of mountains from Paradise as you would expect by the name.
Doubled back to the potential lord of the rings spot. No idea which one it was, no signal to find out and Hannah couldn't be bothered to explore, so we moved on.
Drove past Diamond lake and onto Isengard from LOTR. Big wide valley with mountains behind which they super imposed the white tower onto. Very cool.
Back to the sleepy town of Glenorchy for a massive icecream sunday and a walk around the lake edge and through the Glenorchy lagoon.Read more
