4K SCENIC DRIVE – QUEENSTOWN TO MOUNT COOK, NZ

The most scenic drive we’ve ever had is our drive from Queenstown to Mount Cook in New Zealand back in June 2019.  The road along the way is simply breathtaking. Mount Cook is the tallest mountain in New Zealand 3,724 meters (12,218 ft) in elevation located in the center of the South Island. Footage shot using Fujifilm X-T100.

5-DAY QUEENSTOWN NZ ROAD TRIP

We’ve seen how beautiful Queenstown is –at least in pictures! It’s about time we visit and experience this famous city of New Zealand. And see it for ourselves. We figured out winter would be a perfect season to be swept away in those incredible views of snow-capped mountains. We visited Queenstown in the winter months from 27 June to 1 July 2019. In anticipation of the cold weather, we had to pack reliable winter clothes as temperatures can drop to negative zero degrees. This includes thermal under wears, thermal waterproof gloves, snow boots and other layers of clothing. So packing was a bit tricky. Our group was composed of 6 adults and a toddler before the trip we had already booked a 4-bedroom Airbnb accommodation, Milford Sound Coach and Cruise tour as well as an 8-seater van from Avis car rentals.

ROADTRIP TO THE DRIVE-IN CINEMA

[wp_ad_camp_1] One of the coolest outdoor and Aussie experience is simply to try the drive-in cinema. I love the movies and this has probably become one of my favorite fun things to do. In Adelaide, we have the Mainline Drive-in Cinema in Gepps Cross operated by Wallis Cinemas. It has a large outdoor movie screen and a huge car parking area. You can watch the movie inside your car or outdoor on camping chairs(if the weather is not too cold). Some people with van or SUV type of vehicles open the boot of their cars fold down the back seats and lay down comfortably. Where to find Mainline Drive-in Cinema? Mainline Drive-in Cinema is located north of Adelaide City. Just across a well-known intersection ‘Gepps Cross’ along main north road. Here’s their complete address: 588 Main North Road, Gepps Cross SA 5094.   How much? You have the option to...
