A great day out!! The boat trip was really good. The Walter Peak BBQ was delicious & the gardens & country lodge were absolutely beautiful, & the staff were all so friendly. The best day out I've had out for ages. I flew down to Queenstown just for the day, &, I chose a great activity to do for the say was so relaxing at Walter Peak, I truly didn't want to leave!! I highly recommend to anyone thinking about doing this to do it. The best $129 I've spent in ages!! I went on my own, but everyone waz so friendly on the trip, so don't not go because you are on your own.
