IntroductionThis short walk passes through native bush to reach a stunning cove on Lake Wakatipu - it's a great option for kids.
From the car park, the track descends through native bush with plenty of bird life to Bobs Cove. It has a stunning view over Lake Wakatipu and offers swimming and shore fishing.
A historic lime kiln remains from the 1800s, when the Wakatipu Lime Company quarried and processed Bobs Cove limestone. Gum trees here were planted to fuel the kilns.
This track connects to the Twelve Mile Delta Track.
For mountain bikers the track is undulating with one steep climb.
The track starts at a car park on the Glenorchy–Queenstown Road, 14 km from Queenstown.
Take extra care when parking
During the summer months, accessing car parking sites along the Glenorchy-Queenstown Road can be very busy.
Extreme caution is required. It is not recommended to park along the roadside or reverse out onto the road as the high-flow of traffic is going at speed.
Visiting outside of peak times (in the morning or early evening) may make the parking at this site easier.
