We’re blogging over at Owl Fly Away today!
Today, we decided to take another gander over the Crown Range Drive and stop at the town of Cardrona.
Cardrona is one of New Zealand’s gold rush towns that sprang up in the 1860s alongside the Cardrona river. The town itself is now home to a few historical buildings and is mostly known for it’s alpine resort and ski-field.
Stopping on the Crown Range Road at Cardrona, where we inspect the site of our dream house (wishful thinking!)
It wasn’t wintertime when we were visiting, so we parked our car near the picturesque Cardrona Hotel, and went for a little ramble by the riverside. We picked a trail that is normally used for horse treks, so it was quite well marked out – although we did have to step around a few piles of manure at times!

It was pretty relaxing tramping through the countryside…
