Te Waikoropupu Springs (Pupu Springs) South Island, New Zealand 3.2 km away
#12 of 298 Sights & Landmarks in South Island
Easy board-way walk on a loop through trees to a platform overlooking springs - stop off at each of the lookout points and enjoy the peace and the views.
As for the springs themselves, they were delightful, with an easy 20-minute stroll on well-maintained boardwalks taking you round the site.

There is a fantastic farmyard setup so where young kids can enjoy interacting with goats, sheep, rabbits, feed the eels, and view the Salmon pens.
The tranquility and views are stunning with the staff being very attentive and informative.

Drive right up to the site.
The outcrop was discovered in 1994 by Dave Whittaker, an English geologist who leased the land from the council and cleared weeds and rubbish from the site to create what is there today.
