关于TSS厄恩斯劳号

TSS厄恩斯劳号是皇后镇开拓历史不可分割的一部分,并已成为皇后镇的典型标志。

TSS Earnslaw Vintage Steamship, 1912

她最初授命于新西兰铁路,在瓦卡蒂普湖上为周为社区提供服务。TSS厄恩斯劳号和泰坦尼克号同年投入运营,在1912年10月18日完成其处女航。

她被称为“湖上淑女”,是联接偏僻的牧场区域和外界的重要纽带。长48米,她是瓦卡蒂普湖上最大的船只,运送乘客、羊、牛、信件和物资。 

1968 年,厄恩斯劳号差一点被送去工厂报废,真实旅程将其购买下来继续为乘客提供服务。自那以后,我们便不懈努力将厄恩斯劳号维持在其原有状态不变。你现在看到 的一切和100年前几乎没有差别。如今,TSS厄恩斯劳号是南半球唯一运营的燃煤蒸汽船,使厄恩斯劳号巡游成为全世界最独特的体验之一。  

TSS厄恩斯劳号曾在多部电影里出现,包括在《夺宝奇兵4:水晶头骨》中作为亚马逊河流的船只出镜。电影《金刚》中的SS历险号渔船一部分源于TSS厄恩斯劳号的启发。著名作曲家Ron Goodwin从厄恩斯劳号的引擎节奏中获得灵感,谱写了一首乐曲。

关于瓦尔特峰高地牧场

位于风景如画的瓦卡蒂普湖西南岸,瓦尔特峰高地牧场拥有悠久的历史。毛利人在前往玛拉罗阿(Mararoa  River)和奥雷蒂河(Oreti River)捕猎恐鸟(Moa)和采集绿玉时,在牧场遮蔽的海湾扎营住宿。

Walter Peak High Country Farm, Queenstown

19世纪70年代欧洲移民 Von Tunzelman在这里开始早期的农业活动。牲畜死亡、暴风雪和资金匮乏最终迫使他离开这片土地。

经过一段时间的快速易主后,瓦尔特峰牧场最终于19世纪80年代末由麦肯奇家族接管。麦肯奇家族经过80年的不懈努力,使得高地牧场成功发展壮大,备受赞誉。

在牧场鼎盛时期,面积达到6万8千多公顷,拥有4万头羊和50名全职员工,堪称新西兰最著名的牧场之一。瓦尔特峰牧场最初的牧场区域是现在为人熟知的瓦尔特峰高地牧场(Walter Peak High Country Farm)。

之后牧场兴建了许多永久性住宅,包括有着美丽湖畔花园的上校之家( Colonel’s Homestead)。上校之家最初建于 1902 年,后于1977年一场意外火灾后重新修缮。
