Early autumn colour overlooking Lake Wakatipu from Bob's Peak
Skyline Gondola up Bob's Peak in Queenstown
The energetic (or mad?) walk to the top of Bob’s Peak
in Queenstown though most choose the relaxing Skyline Gondola
. Whatever the method, rewards are spectacular 180+ degree views over Queenstown, sparkling Lake Wakatipu
and surrounding snow-capped mountain ranges. In early autumn leaves turn a burnished gold making for a superb contrast with the sapphire blue waters of Lake Wakatipu.
On the peak, adrenalin seekers ride the weaving luge tracks on small carts while others take a stroll along forested trails or enjoy panoramic views over a steaming cup of hot chocolate – priced at the same lofty heights as the viewpoint.
