It is well known that the Cardrona Pub is a great stopping point on the road between Wanaka and Queenstown but have never actually been there.
As such, our goal for the day was to head over the Crown Range road as it's called, stop at the Cardrona Pub for lunch then venture on to Arrowtown after lunch.
The pub is only about 25kms from Wanaka and all flat to get there. I had always thought it was up high on the range - wrong! Anyway, a gorgeous day in this neck of the woods, mid 20's and hardly a cloud in the sky so we had a drink before lunch out in the beer garden then the usual pub fare for lunch.
