Arthur’s Point: jet boats and letterboxes
Summer 12/13 roadie, days 4-5 contd
For the last two nights of 2012 we stayed in Arthur’s Point which is on the way from Queenstown to its closest ski resort, Coronet Peak. We chose this mainly to be near friends but it’s also a nice alternative to being in town. On our doorstep here were two well known features…
First, the iconic Shotover Jet which blasts up and down the Shotover River and which helped establish Queenstown’s adventure capital reputation. We didn’t partake – it’s quite a bit of cash to fork out on a whim – but I did spend a few minutes admiring from above.
And second, a sort of ‘world famous in NZ’ landmark are the line-up of letterboxes – keep scrolling and you’ll see why…
Top marks for creativity eh?
I love those letterboxes; They are so lovely and imaginary. I have only one letterbox photo in
So you do! I remember coming across your blog before with its many interesting photos so I’ve started following it now. Thanks for leaving a comment.
Love the photos and how fun — the lineup of letter boxes! Cool post, Hayley.
Thanks very much Steph.
I love number 13! Very creative postboxes…poor postie, though! I’m glad you mentioned the Mt Edith Cavell…I recognised the name when I saw it but couldn’t quite remember why!
They put our boring letterbox to shame! Yeah I had to think for a while why the name was familiar. Thanks for the comment Ali.
Wonder who started letterbox row? Poor postie! I guess you’d have to address your letter to “the fish” or whatever. What fun!
Yes that would be a helpful addressing method! Good idea 🙂
