South Island Splendour

Share


New Zealand photographer Rachel Stewart recently travelled the lower South Island with two of her besties in a maui motorhome. Their 8-day adventure covered a lot of ground. From Queenstown to Milford Sound, Lake Matheson, Mount Cook, Tekapo and so many glorious places in between, it's no wonder they were able to capture all of these incredible shots! Have a read of her story and you'll be itching for your next South Island motorhome adventure!
