Central Otago … just stunning!

I’m back from Central Otago. A very quick visit to check on vineyards, enjoy some gorgeous scenery and haul out that camera whenever possible. So in no particular order here they are …


Botanical gardens Queenstown with the Remarkables


Time warp in Arrowtown ..


Pinot Noir grapes at MacArthur Ridge vineyard …


Dam and ducks at Toi Toi Immigrant’s Vineyard, Alexandra


There is something special about beehives … isn’t there?


MacArthur Ridge … stunning view!


My favourite shot … hubby at Botanical gardens!


Central Otago … you are amazing! Clutha River


Not far from Kawarau bridge – bungy country!


Clutha Vineyard …. sigh


And one more of Clutha River ..


Did I? Did I? Of course I did!

Happy gardening toΒ all you great people that did!

  1. Glad you did! Bet it was lovely πŸ™‚ Think its wine o’clock here… right now πŸ™‚
    Gorgeous pics Julie.. and particularly ❀ the photo of the vineyard looking up to the mountains. 188. Breathtaking.
    Looks like you enjoyed yourself. So lovely to share your trip and the stunning scenery.

  2. Of course you did! I should hope. πŸ™‚ Stunning scenery. Thanks so much for sharing. It looks rather like our state of Montana with but with vineyards. Cool and beautiful, I’m guessing that’s kind of a new Zealand thing. πŸ™‚

  3. I’m delighted to be able to join you on that trip, Julie! So many familiar places…we’ve been to the South Island as well and spent a week in Central Otago from where we flew around…Millford Sound, all the mountains, Stewart Island…it was just heavenly! Not only the wine but also scenery, wildlife…bliss πŸ™‚
