Heading out from Queenstown to Cromwell after passing through Frankton the road winds it way into the Kawarau Gorge. The road follows along the Kawarau river with its lovely blue-green waters. It soon passes the world famous AJ Hackets bungy Bridge.
After the bungy bridge the road follows through the gorge. The road here is of pretty good quality but is very busy with lots of tourist traffic. All the same it would still be a good ride at around 60kms.
