Dunedin: Lately, Hilary and I have been doing a lot of local trips in the area between Wanaka and Queenstown. We haven’t been able to do much exploring or see new areas of New Zealand, either because we haven’t had consecutive days off together, or because we’ve had...

Did you know? I'm currently travelling through New Zealand for a year!
On a trip from Wanaka down to Dunedin, Hilary and I stopped in at a place called Saint Bathans. Luckily, Hilary was sleeping while we were driving past so she didn’t even know that I had sneakily turned of to make a scenic detour.
Saint Bathans is an old gold mining town and there isn’t much to see except for some old buildings and a really cool old hotel. There’s also a lake called Blue Lake that is actually man made from the sluicing operations of the mine. I took a few pictures, but it was tough to capture the unique landscape in still photos so I got out my quadcopter (which I have aptly named Dixie) for a quick tour.
I wasn’t really planning to do anything with the video but it ended up being quite cool so I thought I would share it here.
