NZ Travel · I had hoped to be able to get a ferry across the lake to an unsealed road through the mountains towards Milford, but it wasnt possible. The boats were all booked out and the lake was too low for bikes to get on and off the boat.. A shame so I had to do the boring route instead.
It also turned out that Queenstown was completely full of tourists, there wasnt a room, dorm bed or camp site to be had.
