Continue along the footpath to the boat harbour at Bluegum Point (30 min).

For a longer trip (3 hr return) continue round the lakefront and past the rodeo grounds to the mouth of the Upukerora River.

Return either the same way, or follow the gravel road alongside the river to the Te Anau - Milford Highway and back into town. Please be careful as cars travel quickly on this road.

This walk offers beautiful views across Lake Te Anau to the Murchison Mountains and Fiordland National Park.

As this track is not in the Fiordland National Park, you can ride your bike or walk dogs here, and it is great for family activities.
