Haast to Hawea

Otago Daily Times - - TRAVEL -

Dis­tance: 127km

Driv­ing time: 1hr 40min

Road: There’s a good rea­son this road wasn’t opened un­til 1965. It winds and it climbs then it winds and it drops. The views on this drive are ab­so­lutely glo­ri­ous, though, so fac­tor in plenty of time for stop­ping, star­ing and strolling.

High­lights: Falls, falls and more falls — Roar­ing Billy, Fan­tail, Thun­der Creek — take your pick; wan­der­ing and wal­low­ing at the blue pools; blast­ing along the river with Wilkin River jets; hav­ing a chilly dip in Lake Hawea.
