Juanita and I are here in the South Island of New Zealand on the shores of Lake Wakatipu . . . outside Queenstown . . . for a short break.
We are so off the beaten path in ‘Lord of the Rings’ country.
But, we are so seriously ‘living the dream’ at Matakauri Lodge, perched on the cliff-side overlooking the lake and the ‘Remarkables’ mountain ranges.
We are but three hours from Sydney on a Qantas jet . . . but many worlds away.
We savour wonderful meals of the best New Zealand produce, and drink of the best wines. So much so, we don’t leave the Lodge to go into Queenstown for dinner on any of the three evenings we are in residence.
The video shows just how much there is to do in the Queenstown area . . . for all ages and interests. The golf courses are simply spectacularly located. And the countryside in autumn is so colourful, and as they say, ‘’Pure New Zealand!’ The video also showcases the wonderful meals we enjoyed with Chef Dale’s ‘Tasting Menu’ each evening.
