Queenstown to Wanaka via the Crown Range

SH6 and SH89.
Lake Wakatipu, Otago
The standard route between Queenstown and Wanaka is via Cromwell. The Crown Range Road, the highest main road in New Zealand, offers a shorter scenic route. (70 km) now fully sealed.

From Queenstown the Crown Range turn-off is just past Lake Hayes (19km from Queenstown on SH 6).

Some parts of the route are steep and you will want to allow time for photographs. Views from the road can be spectacular. The audio guide will tell you more.
