About this track


Outram Glen is a popular picnic and swimming area. The track makes for an excellent family walk.

Begin at the Outram Glen picnic area off Outram Mosgiel Road. After 20 – 30min the walking track transitions into a tramping track. At this point, a short track provides access to the water, while the tramping track leads to a long traverse above the Taieri River.

After about 1hr the track returns to the river and soon reaches the confluence of Lee Stream/Taieri River junction. There are numerous swimming options.

Getting there

Outram Glen is 23 km from Dunedin via Three Mile Hill. Approaching Outram township, turn right immediately after crossing the Taieri River Bridge. Stay on the gravel road that runs alongside the river to reach the carpark.
