A magnificent mountain range in Otago in the South Island of New Zealand. Located on the southeastern shore of Lake Wakatipu, the range lives up to its name by rising sharply to create an impressive backdrop for the waters. The Remarkables range is clearly visible from the nearby adventure mecca town of Queenstown.
The highest point in the range is Single Cone (2319 metres). Our laser etched design is of Double Cone as viewed from Single Cone.
There are a number of small lakes on the mountains including Lake Alta which forms part of the Remarkables Ski-field.
The mountains were named The Remarkables by Alexander Garvie in 1857-58, allegedly because they are one of only two mountain ranges in the world which run directly north to south. An alternate explanation for the name given by locals is that early Queenstown settlers, upon seeing the mountain range during sunset one evening, named them the Remarkables to describe the sight.
