BackRoad Scenic Journeys

The BackRoad Bus offers alternative transport options for travellers on their journey between Te Anau and Queenstown.

You will not find it on most maps, it is a road connection through conservation park, river fordes, farmland and river valleys joining Lake Te Anau with Lake Wakatipu (Queenstown).

Join us for an unforgettable journey through a land long forgotten by the tourist maps. See historic home sites, Lord of the Rings Film locations, Livestock wandering free on the road side and join us for a cuppa at Mavora Lakes.

Then board the TSS Earnslaw & cruise the sparkling waters of Lake Wakatipu to Queenstown.

Walter Peak Farm tour activities such as shearing, farm tours, horse riding or Evening Meal / Barbeque need to be arranged seperately and prior to departure, these optional extras are not part of the Tracknet transport experience.
