Distance: 2.6km return via the same track. Time: 1hr This walk branches off the Blue Lakes Track just past the Blue Lakes shelter and leads to a viewpoint of the glaciers terminal lake. Another track branches off to go to the source of the Tasman River. Icebergs can usually be seen floating in the lake in summer, and in winter, the lake freezes over. The track leads through the glaciers old terminal moraines (rock and stone debris left when a glacier retreats), and you can see good examples of plant succession along the route.

Nice walk, beautiful scenery



We have often seen people feeding birds and ducks with bread. Bread is not good for them. If you really want to feed them give them something they are likely to find in nature. The best thing is to not feed them at all
