    From Cadrona, you have two choices of how you can get to Arrowtown and Queenstown. One, is by going through Cromwell, or two, the rough and tumble of Crown Range, which is also a longer but a much more scenic drive.

    Since we can from afar, we might as well do the latter. One interesting point to note is that the Crown Range Road is the highest main road in New Zealand. The road brings you through mountains and interesting zigzag roads.

    kawarau river aerial view

    For a real adventure catch a glimpse of Middle Earth from on the River Anduin (The Kawarau River). Raft through the actual area where the 'Pillars of the Kings' were computer-generated onto the sides of the gorge. The Kawarau River is great for first time rafters, fun size rapids interspaced with long stretches of flat water, where you have the option to take in the scenery, have a swim or even a water fight!

    There are some nice forest walking tracks along the Arrow River which are very cooling especially in autumn.
