In the 1860s gold was found and Queenstown was born. Before the Europeans came, the area was sought after by the Maori's because of the pounamu (greenstone/nephrite jade) found in the area. Queenstown is tucked into a picturesque bay on the shores of Lake Wakatipu which is around 84 km long and shaped like a lightning bolt. The pictures of Queenstown and the lake were taken from the top of one of the surrounding hills. It was sunny for the first 2 days but lately the weather has been much like it is in the photos - cloudy and chilly!
