Located at a short, 45 minute drive from the city of Queensland, the quaint settlement of Glenorchy is the perfect place for a weekend getaway. It is an extremely green and picturesque little town, but has a lot of fun-filled activities that you can enjoy, ranging from kayaking, hiking, skiing, snowboarding. You might have caught glimpses of this town before in one of your favourite movies, including the Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit and The Chronicles of Narnia as many scenes have been shot here. Glenorchy is also close to a number of walking tracks, many of which are popular across the country and are known for being safe yet picturesque.
This place has you covered even if you’re not into the physical activities of hiking or kayaking etc! You could spend some time at the Glenorchy Animal Experience, where you can meet and spend time with many farm animals, ranging from donkeys and goats to alpacas and baby sheep! You could also go camping in the forest, next to the lake and take in the fresh forest air around you! Don’t forget to click some amazing, Instagram-worthy pictures while you’re here!
