The sign at the entrance to Bannockburn says it all “Welcome to the heart of the desert”. Crossing the bridge you’ll enter a unique landscape that is scarred by the 1860’s gold rush, and rejuvenated by viticulture. Some of New Zealands most significant Pinot Noir is grown here.

Up the short rise from the trail you can venture down Felton Road with it’s incredible range of vineyards and cellar doors, or continue to the Bannockburn village. You’ll find the beginning of the trail that will eventually link Bannockburn with Queenstown running alongside Felton rd. 

Following the Lake Dunstan Trail as it turns under the bridge you’ll enter the inlet, a favourite family spot for swimming and boating, nestled amongst yet more stellar vineyards. This is a truly gorgeous part of the trail with many great photo opportunities.
