This place is amazing with unreal views. This place looks deserted but offers great view. There is a very nice view point which is high from car park area. You should definitely stop here if you are driving though this route.

Travelled the Lindis Pass between Cromwell and Omarama. Stopped near the summit to take in the scenery, which was absolutely stunning. Central Otago at is best. Not to be missed.

Drove through on the way to Queenstown. Sun was out and it was a lovely day to drive. Stunning scenery, would like to see it in winter, when the snow is around.

While driving along State Highway 8 between Omarama and Wanaka, you will enter the Lindis Pass, where the highway climbs as it weaves through beautiful landscape. Eventually, you will find the Lindis Pass Viewpoint. This is a good pullover spot. There is a 200 metre...More

As I was biking around the South Island, it was a huff and puff all the way to the top, but the breathtaking views from the top made it worth all the sweat. The ride down on the other side was a breeze.
