Crown Range Road, Arrowtown Overview

Crown Range Road is the highest main road in New Zealand, the highest point of it standing at a height of 1121 metres from sea level. This road is a stretch of 69 kilometres between the towns of Wanaka and Queensland offering some breath-taking views of the beautiful South Island. Visitors can also enjoy a beautiful view of the Arrowtown village and the Remarkables Range. This stretch is an alternate route between the two towns, the other one is through Cromwell which is longer but takes less time. The Crown Range is shorter but due to its difficult conditions, the travel time increases.

The road consists of 7 hairpin bends and many turns unfolding a new scenery for the eyes to relish. The road consists of multiple view points for the visitors to pause for a while and enjoy beautiful views of the green valleys extending up to the horizons. It is advisable to visit the range in the summers in order to enjoy the best views during pleasantweather. In winters, due to the temperature drops to the negatives, the range is mostly filled with snow and vehicles are not allowed to enter the road without snow chains. Tourists can also find a couple of lodges around the Cardona Valley in case they wish to stay overnight.
