Day 5 - Drive between Wanaka and FJG

Long drive!

rain 8 °C

Hi again everyone it's Rebecca here and we're on day 5 of our really amazing trip around New Zealand.

We have seen so many waterfalls, creeks (all individually named - we passed Smiths Creek yesterday, and the next one was Docherty Creek!) and way too many one-way-bridges!


Throughout today it has been quite boring driving on and on from Queenstown to Franz Josef (just for those who don't know thats a very long way!). On the journey just today we did see some really cool things including the biggest water fall I have ever seen and a really long one way bridge. We started our journey at around 10:30 and drove over the top of the Crown Range (between Queenstown and Wanaka) - we got an amazing view of the whole of Queenstown (though Dad wasn't looking - he was concentrating on keeping us on the road!).

Eventually we made it to Franz Josef Township - and booked our glacier hike for tomorrow! Really looking forward to that!
