We were a street back from Shotover St & just down the hill from the Gondola. I had booked dinner at the restaurant at the top that night as I knew we would not be in til late in the afternoon and because we were originally going to return the hire car the next day, I thought that it was a good time to go so that we could drive to the car park. (We weren't sure how far it was) Taking every thing into consideration when we arrived, we decided to keep the car til the day before we left.
