It was a lovely blue dome day on Lake Wakatipu, one of the most glorious places on the planet. The BBQ lunch was amazing, particularly the Cardrona lamb and Canterbury pork. The salad selection was wide and varied and really tasty. The killer was the deserts - they were brilliant and I knew by dinner time that night that I had overeaten at lunch. Memorable experience for my wife's 80th birthday.

We had an amazing time cruising across Lake Wakatipu on a stunning blue sky day on the SS Earnslaw. This followed by a fabulous BBQ lunch with tasty salads, tender meat & delicious desserts in a stunning location. The staff were excellent, the sheep dog demonstration slick & the weather wonderful - will happily recommend to any visitors to Queenstown!
