The Remarkables

The Remarkables are synonomous with Queenstown but in their own right The Remarkables are an attraction in themselves. They are well known for their Ski fields but in the summer you can still drive to the top for a commanding view of Lake Wakatipu.
To get to the top of the Remarkables you need to take the road out of Queenstown and then turn right as if you are going south to Bluff. There is a turning that leads off into a field.
The track will lead up the side of the mountain to the top. The track has a sheer drop and can be hair raising for anybody who does not have a head for heights.

 For the Artist the Remarkables have a all year attraction because they look just as attractive topped with snow as they are bare in the summer.
