Arrowtown & Glenorchy

From Cromwell we spent some time to the west at Arrowtown and Glenorchy. Arrowtown is noted as an old gold town with a lot of the original buildings left. Unfortunately its proximity to Queenstown means that it is very much on the tourist beat. Glenorchy is beyond Queenstown at the head of Lake Wakatipu and is a delightfully untouched settlement. Unfortunately we had to drive through Queenstown to get to Glenorchy, originally we had thought of stopping there to take a look but having seen the place drove straight through.
