We left Henry Creek and set off on highway 94 towards Mossburn and Five Rivers before turning north on Highway 6 towards Queenstown. Between Kingston and Queenstown the road hugs the shore of Lake Wakatipu, giving some fantastic views and equally fun driving, even in a Toyota Hiace.
We were going to head away towards Wanaka for the night, but when we went to empty our waste water tank at a dump station, we found that sometime in the last couple of days, probably on a gravel road somewhere, the nozzle had broken off, meaning we couldn’t attach the drain hose. Oh dear. As it was after Maui’s closing time we had to find somewhere nearby to stay, then go and get it fixed in the morning. We drove along the lake shore road to 12 Mile Camping Ground, another basic but cheap Department of Conservation run site. Beautiful and quiet with a lovely warm breeze to dry our washing.
