Queenstown, New Zealand

New Zealand is one of the areas of the world that has been relatively unrepresented on this site. One reason for this is that the videos we find don't do justice to the beauty of this country.

Today's video is a panorama of Queensland, New Zealand shot from the mountains overlooking the town showing the vista of Lake Wakatipu and the mountains beyond.

Queenstown is a resort town in Otago in the south-west of New Zealand's South Island. It is built around an inlet on Lake Wakatipu, a long thin lake shaped like a staggered lightning bolt, and has spectacular views of nearby mountains.
