  • You will enjoy the park with all the great activities that abound. There are several activities to keep all the family members happy and active.  more »
  • From the parking lot it is about a 10K hike up a beautiful valley with a stream flowing through it, numerous waterfalls off the bordering mountains. Mt Aspiring towers ahead of you covered in glaciers...  more »
  • I sit here trying to think of superlatives I haven't used since arriving in NZ 4 weeks ago. I can't think of one so I am just going to say ... jus get out there and do it.  more »

  • One of our favourite places but getting too busy. Please make use of the the DOC toilet facilities at Cameron Flat and Pleasant Flat and not the side of the road or bush. Take your rubbish with you. Leave only footprints and take only photos and memories.
  • Definitely worth going there. My mum and I went straight from the Queenstown airport. We stayed there for 2 nights. The weather was wonderful. Also, we visited the Rob Roy Glacier on the way up there.
  • A lovely motorcycle ride of 280km return from Cromwell to Pleasant Flat for Christmas lunch picnic. Christmas Eve actually as it's supposed to rain tomorrow.
  • Stunning scenery and great views of Rob Roy Glacier.
  • Beautiful area. Lots of movies filmed there. Bring bug repellent for your hike.
