Artwork description:

Glenorchy is a start point to The Southern Alps. This is a place with mountains which runs through the southern island of New Zealand. These mountains were named by the great explorer, Captain Cook. They can rival any mountain range for beauty. The climate is cold with snow and ice year-round at the highest points. From soaring mountains to a wild and dramatic coastline, golden hill country to crystal alpine lakes, the Southern Lakes is one of the most diverse and beautiful regions in New Zealand. The region runs from the dramatic landscapes of Fiordland in the south to the rugged mountains and to Lake Wanaka in the north, an inspiring place of tranquility and beauty.
Nowhere is the wild beauty of New Zealand displayed with more effect than in the stunning landscapes of Fiordland. Here, untamed waterfalls tumble hundreds of metres into virgin forested valleys, lonely fjords greet the sun with enchanted birdsong, and stretches of crystal clear lakes shimmer in the pure air surrounded by a mantle of vivid green rainforest and towering granite peaks. The local scenery received worldwide attention when it was used as one of the settings in the first of Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Ring films. Glenorchy is the start point to the base of the Southern Alps with their breathtaking mountains vistas, where ancient forests meet glacial lakes. A place in Paradise - literally! George
