新西兰游记 12天南北岛(下)

/ 2评 / 0

Dunedin

Dunedin也是新西兰行程中不多的城市点之一,有了前几天christchurch的经验,心想这里估计也要上当,其实一开始我是不愿意去的,从mt cook直接去皇后镇还近一些呢,但是定都定了,还是去吧。 车程要3个半小时,开到奥马鲁已经接近傍晚6点了,4人一行(christchurch集合的另一对夫妻)决定打点一下肚子。吃腻了fish & chips决定来一点开封菜缓一缓。。 oamaru也是靠海小镇,吃完后决定去海边散散步,无意中在GOOGLEMAPS中发现,这里还能看蓝眼企鹅,直冲过去后发现,这里的鸟类分成了3块站在废弃码头上,感觉看到了人类消失后的世界,也算个美丽的意外了。 城里的老建筑其实也不错,但是没来得及拍照片。

继续上路去Dunedin,沿海公路就是漂亮,小伙伴们趁着落日前再看看海。坐在浪前拍个照什么的~~最有情调了 ~~

到了Dunedin发现这里和christchurch完全两种画风嘛,其实这里还是值得来一次的,虽然落没,依旧漂亮(落魄贵族?)

还有一条需要走很长路才看得到的隧道沙滩。

故事发生在1870年代,约翰•嘉吉(William Cargill)是一位船长的儿子,他和家人都非常享受与大海亲密接触的时光。但在某一个再平常不过的下海嬉戏玩耍的日子里,这位父亲完全意想不到巨大的不幸正向他们一家袭来,一个海浪卷走了他们最年幼的女儿 !

沉重的丧女之痛压得他喘不过气,他的脑海时时浮现年幼的女儿天真灿烂的笑容,想到此生再也没有机会送她礼物庆祝她的生日,看着她一点一点长大,心如刀绞。这 位悲痛的父亲作了一个惊人的决定,他要送给小女儿一份“最后的礼物”,他要用双手凿出一条通往海滩的隧道!接下来漫长的年年岁岁里,这位父亲真的就这样日 复一日一锤一锤凿向坚固冰冷的岩石,每一次的叮当作响,他都彷佛看到岩石对面的女儿的笑容近了一点点,他的悲伤也这样一点一点消化在了汗水里…… 如今一百多年过去了,岩石隧道依然屹立在那里,见证着世间伟大的父爱。

这条通往隧道海滩的步道大约要走上20分钟,沿途是让人流连忘返的海岸风光。

一路上,一直在一些景点会碰到一个叫日月光旅行社的团,基本上碰到他们玩的景点都让人失望的,所以千万不能跟团啊。比如baldwin street这个号称世界上坡度最大的居住区就是之一……

Queenstown

Queenstown声名在外,旅游业太发达,到处都是旅游纪念品小店,说实话并不喜欢这种风格的地方。亮点倒还是这里的b&b

如果家里有这种景,我估计可以宅几年不用出门了。。 当地有巨好吃的牛排店,天天要排队必须提前预定。 没有给食物消毒的习惯,盗一张。

Queenstown是冒险者的天堂,不知道谁给定位的,反正这里有蹦极和跳伞2个我不敢玩的项目。玩了漂流,不吓人,感觉可以再刺激一些。去漂流的路skippers canyon road倒是亮点。

有机会真想自己开一次。

The canyon and Skippers Point were named after 'Skipper' Malcolm Duncan, who discovered gold in the canyon in 1862.Born in Northern Ireland, Duncan served for a number of years on American ships, hence the nickname 'Skipper'. Duncan took part in the gold rush and discovered gold at Skippers Creek, which soon became known as Skippers Point or simply 'Skippers'. Next to Duncan, several other gold miners took claims in the area of Skippers Point where they remained working on them until the early 1900s. The remains of their water races, holding dams, sluicings and tailings of the established claims are still obvious today. A huge sluiced basin of the Skippers Sluicing Company's claim, right below Mount Aurum Station's Homestead and Skippers School, is very much visible today, even though it is completely covered by trees. Like Charlestown, Skippers Point had an initial population of about 1,000 people but stabilised to about 200 around 1864. At one stage, there were six hotels at Skippers Point, but like Charlestown, their life was short. Today, only the Mount Aurum Station's Homestead and Skippers School as well as the cemetery are visible. This cemetery contains some interesting headstones. Of more recent times is the delightful inscription on the grave of Lorraine Borrell: "my time is up, I’ve been clocked out. The judge has tapped the gavel. I’ll retire the teapot, lay the knitting down and quietly unravel."

Te Anau

Te Anau是去milford sound的必经之路,小镇很漂亮蓝到不可思议

在这里可以去看看萤火虫,不过不能拍照挺可惜的。洞里漆黑一片,有个中国人按亮了闪光灯……继续无语。

Milford sound

在来新西兰前,对Milford sound的期望甚至是超过tekapo的,不过在来的时候忽略了一点——这里一年要下180多天雨,是的,我们玩的那天天气也不好,而且这里被过度旅游开发,游人太多,总体感觉一般,妹子说这里是桂林。 倒是周边的森林真不错,绿得也是变态了。 12天游玩南北岛,其时间还是有点紧张的,dunnedin和kaikoura都适合住两晚,开车也会相对轻松,12天开了2600多公里,辛苦但值得,路上的风景不比景点少哟。

有空再更照片,花了2天把服务器做好了,终于有心思把游记写掉了(什么逻辑)
