    Hike along Wanaka's Waterfall Creek Track

    Bike along the Clutha River

    17.4 mi

    Ben Lomond Track via Old Skyline Road

    25.99 mi / 3107 ft gain
    Adventuring up to Ben Lomond's summit is an out-and-back day hike with views that are arguably more rewarding than some of those you get on New Zealand's Great Walks. You can take the Skyline gondola part way up if you want to shorten the climb, but I usually start at the small signposted carpark...

    Camp at Moke Lake

    4.3 mi
    The drive to Moke Lake from Queenstown is only 14km but it takes about 30 minutes since you're on a dirt road for a good portion of it. You'll pass Lake Kirkpatrick and lots of sheep on your way to Moke Lake, but keep driving until you get to the campground that's on the southeast end of the lake...
