From Athol you start descending to the village of Kingston. The pretty village is between mountain ranges and tucked into a lakeside setting. Sitting at the southern tip of Lake Wakatipu and on the border of Otago and Southland Kingston can be overlooked in the rush to Queenstown. Relax and enjoy a lakeside walk within the mountain ranges. The town is a mere 47 km from Queenstown yet the rizzy adventure capital is light years away. The Southern Scenic Route passes directly through the picturesque town.
And the drawcard for train lovers is the parked up Kingston Flyer and the adjoining picturesque heritage railway station, now a summer time cafe.
