Hoi Berend! Yes, it should be. They brought trees from Europe over here. The entire area was full of introduced deciduous trees, which usually never occur in the Southern Hemisphere.
I showed the photos to my Brit friend. According to him, the landscape of Arrowtown, as well as the rest of Otago Region, after reforestation looked more like Bavaria.
I love this beautiful photo, very surprising view agrèable colors.
Congratulations, you have my L.
Greetings, friends, Roger.

Beautiful snow-capped mountains and lake with that nice poplar tree on the beach. F + L
Snowfall in autumn. Were you on a mountain?
Beautiful Wanaka. F + L
Takes my breath away. True paradise. F + L
