Haast Highway around Cameron Flat

This 140-km section of State Highway 6 is a spectacular and scenic road linking Wanaka and Haast.

It reaches beyond wind-whipped Lakes Wanaka and Hāwea, through golden tussock-covered hills, to wind among steep mountains cloaked in lush rainforest and cross tumbling rivers. It then skirts undulating forests that seemingly float in tea-stained swamps, to finally reach the foaming surf of the Tasman Sea.
