This is a new walking track for medium to fit walkers. It takes you through native forests, similar to the Routeburn track. There is a stream running throughout and it's beautiful. It is still in the making but the track well formed as far as it...more

This lovely trail is ideal for walk for about 30 mins. Better after lunch. The trees and river create a lovely atmosphere.

You can do this in any weather. Not a native bush walk but the trees are still attractive and provide good shade in the summer. In the river bed coming from Arrowtown stick to the pipeline to avoid the meandering rough tracks. If you have...More

We went on this walk after having lunch in the town. It was absolutely beautiful with all the native flowers and mossy creek. Some steep uphill bits and we only went to the waterfall, but a great walk for reasonably fit people.

Not a very long walk but very pleasant and not far from the town. I had excellent weather and loved this short walk beside the creek under the trees. I think these are not native trees, most seem to be european.
