Queenstown on Lake Wakatipu
From Franz Josef we drove down to Queenstown, another beautiful town on the Lake Wakatipu. This is one of the most gorgeous towns in New Zealand even though it was a typical tourist attraction. The views from the lake and of the surrounding countryside were really spectacular. We left Franz Josef at 8.30 am and  stopped by to see another scenic wonder - Lake Matheson on the way to Haarst. From here we could see the top of Mount Cook - just the tips of its snow capped top but a glorious view nevertheless. Lake Mathieson itself was quite a walk inside - almost one and a half kilometers away but once we were there no words could describe the awe and wonder of it -with the surrounding mountains reflected in the still waters of the lake. It was a picture postcard.
