Returning from Queenstown towards Christchurch, we stopped overnight at Fairlie Top Ten Caravan Park. This was not a good choice as this was the least pleasing of the seven or eight parks we used while touring the South Island with fairly limited facilities and rather disinterested staff. We were well compensated however by our discovery of the Red Stag restaurant situated on the edge of the small town on the main road from Fairlie to Queenstown. Beautiful gardens and a lovely atmosphere in very comfortable surroundings, excellent attentive service and a memorable meal including venison and dory fish, all in all another discreetly hidden treasure in a country where we found both the quality of food and the quality of service exceptionally and consistently high.
