If you want an easy, no-hassle visit to some of the more gorgeous scenery on the planet -- Moke Lake might be for you. It's a quick drive from Queenstown, but as soon as you turn off the main highway you are in a different world. The drive through a highland sheep station is lovely, and then you reach a gem of a lake set against mountains with a nice walk around it. This is not a serious hike, but it's a nice place for a picnic or stroll. On the day we went -- a Friday afternoon in summer -- there were only a few other people at the lake, including a couple of campers. It was lovely!
