A tiny town out of the way

There isn’t a road just going through Glenorchy, only one going to it, and then back again. So I was surprised to see how much they depend on tourism and how well they are still doing in comparison with other places. I have to admid I was totally taken aback when the Glenorchy Holiday Park wanted to charge me $102 per night for a powered site. Yes, there are heritage buildings in the park and you can get a breakfast in the morning and all that..., but no, that's just a little out of my price range. We also didn’t stay over at the Mrs Wooly's that only charged $45. In stead we spent some time in the town, supported the Glenorchy Rockshop and Mrs Wooly's shop. Then we drove back through Queenstown and on to Arrowtown. Glenorchy is a lovely little place though and definitely worth visiting.

I was amazed at the variety of industries of this little town.

A lovely little shop that sells coffee, food, clothes and much more!

Not a good photo, but it was great to see that Glenorchy has a book exchange.
