Day 7 Invercargill to Queenstown

Today is just a quick hop, a straight rup up the hwy from Invercargill to Queenstown, only about 200km.

Somewhere north of Invercargill



We stopped for morning tea in Winton. Next stop is just before 11am in Lumsden. Today is 11 Nov, the 100th anniversary of the WW1 Armistice and the local Returned Services club is having a ceremony at the war memorial in town. We stop to pay our respects. The army has even supplied a small gun (the type which is towed behind a vehicle) to fire off some shots as part of the ceremony.

Devils Staircase lookout.





We head through Queenstown on the Glenorchy road to the lookout to get some more photos of the northern arm of the lake.
