Dunedin Railway Station

Not sure these need explaining really, claims to be NZ’s most photographed building, certainly it’s beautiful both inside and out, with a mosaic floor and stained glass windows inside, and the fantastic architecture outside.

Dunedin

Big cathedral

Town hall building

Statue of Robert Burns, very much the city of Scottish heritage this

More impressive buildings

That can’t be right, surely? Or is this a different Portsmouth?

Another view on the building above

Robbie Burns and the cathedral

Queenstown

An old steamboat takes us across the lake to a beautiful farm

A very beautiful farm

With very nice buildings

And an old cottage whose significance I cannot remember

The boat we took

Scenic views of the lake the boat crossed

Queenstown itself

Nearby Arrowtown, historical place with a bit of an English touch to it

Franz Josef – Queenstown

Fox Glacier

Farewell to the Tasman Sea

Really quite a lot of impressive scenery.

A brief stop in scenic Wanaka

Cardrona, popular with skiers.

Looking over some more scenery not too far from Queenstown

Franz Josef

Franz Josef Glacier, further away than it looks

Getting slowly closer

At last!

Opening on the bottom with glacier water pouring on, definitely not a safe place to be

Looking the other way was pretty scenic too, and you realise how far you walked to get close to it

Farewell photo

Christchurch – Franz Josef

Arthur’s Pass, shame about the weather.

Shantytown, an old West Coast gold rush town

Sunset… somewhere along the journey

Christchurch

Christchurch Cathedral, behind the statue of John Robert Godley, founder of the city.

The Cathedral

Away from Cathedral Square slightly, with a tram approaching

A giant rose in the Botanic Gardens

Old style architecture is ever-present around the centre

The Crossing

My one decent photo of the crossing before my camera ran out, beautiful day, beatiful scenery.

Wellington

Was only here for one night unfortunately, hence I just have a picture of the waterfront…

… and the city lit up at night.
