Queenstown Gardens

The first photo is taken by me from in front of the Bath House Cafe on the shore of Lake Wakatipu. The mountain is Cecil Peak. The peninsula covered in trees is Queenstown Gardens. Between the Bath House Cafe and the gardens are playgrounds for children of various ages from tiny tots to older children. After the playgrounds you walk straight into the gardens. I was feeling in a fun mood and Nigel took a snap of me acting the goat in the playground closest to the gardens (second photo). Soon I’ll be posting photos from in the gardens so I thought I’d give you a little introduction.

  1. We took a stroll around the gardens when we were there (about the same time as you, only a few years earlier) and were absolutely blown away by the beautiful peonies. I have one, and it won’t flower!

    1. Oh that’s sad that it won’t flower! Peonies are just coming out now and I found a beautiful one today in Gore Gardens – I held it so that Nigel could photo it. I’ll post it within the next few days as he did get a nice shot 🙂 Growing up in Northland I didn’t see peonies so it seems such a treat to see them down here – they do so wonderfully down south here!

    1. Queenstown is lovely if you can find some space to yourself and some peace and quiet – that’s a challenge! Fortunately the bulk of the tourists all crowd to the same places so its usually possible to get away from the madness!
