Arthurs Pass


Arthurs Pass is a tiny town somewhere in the middle of the South Island of New Zealand. Wikipedia teaches me there are about 54 residents (wow), not counting the backpackers that visit this interesting place. It didn’t have that ‘end of the world feeling’ that I was expecting, but maybe that was the huge trucks that passed through the town on an almost hourly basis. However, it was still very much worth a visit. I mean, look at this photo! 🙂 I took this when I was on my way to the Devil’s Punchbowl Falls. The sun was out, the forest lush and green, and the waterfall itself beautiful and refreshing as it splashed around.

  1. Snow-topped, forest-clad mountains and a busy stream rushing by on a stoney bed – that looks a great New Zealand landscape 🙂 It looks very peaceful too – I can’t imagine traffic travelling close by!


    1. It is! Pretty much the whole country has amazing landscapes like these and I find it absolutely incredible! This was off the road, but you will definetly hear it when a huge truck/lorry speeds on by.
