Mountain reflections at the lagoon


Est. Duration




Message from Rach Stewart

The Glenorchy Lagoon Lookout is a must-see destination in the beautiful town of Glenorchy near Queenstown.

This pristine lagoon, framed by the towering Southern Alps, boasts serene waters that reflect the rugged grandeur of the surrounding landscape. The contrast between the dark waters and the snow capped peaks creates a mesmerising scene that is a photographer's dream.

The beautiful walking track that meanders around the water offers amazing view of Mount Earnslaw and on a calm day the reflections are absolutely worth getting the camera out for. There is a stunning platform spot to take a rest and grab a magical landscape shot.

For photography and golden hour this location is best at sunrise and sunset and make sure you've got your zoom lens handy.
