Go early, place is great, easy point of interest and great view. Southern point of nz. Bring a camera or some binoculars so you can see all the seals on the rocks. Hard to see but there are a ton of them.

Ya, you’ll feel it. But you will in all nz trails. Check it out, go past the marker. It is longer than you think, it just keeps going.

Easy down and back. The highlight is the caves. Go in low tide, then explore the cave. There is a second cave, check it out, but you will get wet. Bring your camera.

Nice trail with wonderful views of native vegetation and waterfall. Can be overcrowded at times, but overall worth doing. Good trail for kids.

Amazing hike with breathtaking waterfalls! Do note that the road to the trail head floods in places, so if you don't have a car with good clearance than you'll be walking about and extra 1.5 miles to the head.

The best track I did if we are talking about beach sand and blue water ! A must do

easy one ,good to get a nice view of queenstown

the combination of suspension bridges, teal glacier runoff fed rivers with gentle waterfalls, three lakes, icebergs, prominent peaks, and glaciers make this one of my all time favorite hikes.
