A settlement at the northern end of Lake Wakatipu, Glenorchy offers a lifestyle like no other. On the doorstep of national parks including Fiordland and Mt Aspiring, Glenorchy is home to just 400-500 people. Sitting approximately 45km from Queenstown by road, it’s a scenic lakeside drive that’s well worth the trip.

Glenorchy has enough facilities to cater to the tourist and resident population, with a couple of pubs, a café, petrol station and a range of small shops. An airstrip provides thrills for holidaymakers as well as convenience for local hunters and fisherpeople wanting to access the outdoors.

The famed Routeburn Track starts a short distance from Glenorchy, as do other notable trails including the Caples, Greenstone and Rees-Dart. Popular local and tourist activities include fishing, horse riding, jet boating, canyoning, skydiving, skiing, and boating.

The township is host to a collection of homes of varying ages including recent builds, plus further out along the Paradise Road are larger landholdings and lifestyle properties.
