Fulfil your dream to see Queenstown, and discover some of Otago’s other special places along the way. Enjoy the heritage architecture and eco-experiences of Dunedin before you drive up the coast to Oamaru, home of the amazing Moeraki Boulders. The beautiful Waitaki Valley leads you to Omarama, New Zealand’s top gliding spot. Lindis Pass, Lake Dunstan and the Kawarau Gorge are sights you’ll remember on the road to Queenstown, where you can find almost any kind of adventure (and almost any kind of restaurant!). The trip back to Dunedin takes you through historic gold rush towns and fruit growing areas.
