IntroductionExplore old moraine surfaces on this easy, short walk, south of Fox Glacier township.
Start your walk on the Fox Glacier South Side Walkway/Cycleway. Bikes are not permitted on the Moraine Walk, so if you have cycled leave your bike at the start of the Moraine Walk.
Off the main walkway/cycleway the track narrows as this easy walk takes you over the old moraine surfaces and reveals how quickly plants establish here. Moraines are the debris of rocks and stones left when a glacier retreats, and the walk begins on a surface several thousand years old before crossing the AD1600 and AD1750 moraines.
When you meet the walkway/cycleway at the other end of the track you can return via the walkway/cycleway or back along the Moraine Walk. You can also explore further up the valley to the viewpoints before returning to the car park.
Drive south for 2 km from the Fox Glacier Weheka township, cross the Fox River Bridge and park in the car park on the left hand side of the road heading south.
