Albert Town to Wanaka – 13kms
Total – 901kms
It was a nice easy day to Wanaka which meant I could afford time for a sleep-in and a visit to the local patisserie for breakfast. I had a warm cheese and ham croissant (amazing!) and a coffee.
The trail from Albert Town combined a number of tracks up the side of the Clutha River to Lake Wanaka outlet and then around the shore line to the Wanaka township. I met dad and Janeen in town for lunch and then up to our ‘book a batch’ accommodation for tonight and tomorrow. There is no shortage of restaurants to choose from here. We went to a Mexican restaurant for dinner.
I am having a rest day in Wanaka before three days over to Arrowtown on the Motatapu Alpine track. Then another day to Queenstown.
