Relive the elegance of turn of the century travel with a cruise aboard the TSS Earnslaw steamship.
Watch the stokers fuel the fire boxes, feel the heat from the boilers and hear the steam engines working as "the Lady" takes you across beautiful Lake Wakatipu. As you relax on board enjoy a delicious meal or snack from the Promenade Cafe or a drink from the bar.
There's plenty of time to explore and you can even join in a sing-a-long around the piano.
