The road to Ohau – scenic inland New Zealand

When I think of beautiful scenery in New Zealand I think coastal initially. My roadtrip through the South Island taught me otherwise. Not only are the coastal aspects beautiful, but the mountain and lakes too… even the roadside!

Too often us Kiwi’s take our scenery for granted, so I wanted to share a photo post with you all as a little insight into the roadtrip from Cromwell in Otago to Lake Ohau and Pukaki.

I had to include a few of these as this was my base to see in the New Year, each morning and night I was welcomed to snow-capped mountains across the blue lake…
