“If you’re looking for a nice, hour long (round trip) walk, take the track from the eastern end of Queenstown heading out towards Sunshine Bay.”

The slightly rough but reasonably maintained schist and dirt track meanders along beside Lake Wakatipu under a canopy of trees which arch over the track.

The walk itself is not too taxing, but can get a little slippery if there has been rain. There are a couple of look out spots for you to soak up the glorious views of the Lake Wakatipu, framed by snow capped mountains, and do keep your eyes peeled for bell birds, tuis and kereru singing and dancing amongst the trees. You can walk for 10 minutes to the little bridge over the tinkering waterfall, or stop in at Raewards Fresh Market before you go, pick up picnic supplies and take the half hour walk to Sunshine Bay where you will more than likely be the only ones on the pebbled beaches. Skim stones, wander to the rocky end of the beach or simply sit and chill out to the sound of the waves lapping up on the beachfront.
