Description

Head down Butchers Drive from the Memorial Hall carpark and then follow the yellow marker posts. The track follows the lake/river all the way around to the Mining Center in the Kawarau Gorge. On the way it ducks under the Bannockburn bridge so you do not need to cross the road.

  • Staying Safe

    Easy.

    Follow yellow markers.
    At the Bannnockburn end of the track as you come out the gate onto the gravel area, the track continues on the other side and goes down and under Bannockburn bridge.

    Generally good.

    Long-sleeved thermal top, Windproof jacket, Beanie/thermal headwear, Whistle, First aid kit, Extra food for emergencies, Cellphone, Map.

    Nope, none on track.

    Make sure you take water during summer - it gets pretty damn hot!
    Frosty cold mostly in winter, so an extra layer (or two) is a good idea.

    Loose rocks
