An easy day walk and a nice one to do in the midst of winter. This walk begins over the river from Glenorchy (3km from Kinloch) and is well signposted. Climbing easily through beech forest, you soon arrive at the opening of the basin with beautiful views of the glacier straight in front of you.

Best to stay just out of the bushline in winter, as the surrounding mountains are prone to avalanches.

Pack a picnic and enjoy 360 degrees of views in the basin. Plenty of wonderful native birdlife to see also.

Follow the track the same way out.
