Ian Schulz Photography New Zealand Photo Tour April 2017 - Walter Peak High Country Farm Queenstown TSS Earnslaw

 

On the wind-down after our recent Queenstown New Zealand Photo Tour, I decided to take a cruise on the TSS Earnslaw on Lake Wakatipu. The TSS Earnslaw is a 1912Twin Scream Steamer (TSS), and the only remaining commercial passenger-carrying coal-fired steamship in the southern hemisphere. We steamed out across the lake to Walter Peak High Country Farm, where we had Tea and Scones (yum!) It’s a great escape for families, but also for us oldies who enjoy a bit of a relax amongst all the adventure tours in Queenstown.
