Queenstown Guided Nature Walk | Lakeshore, Forest & Bird Guided Walk

Queenstown Guided Nature Walk | Lakeshore, Forest & Bird Guided Walk

The 'Lakeshore Forest & Bird' guided walk is a unique nature interpretative experience taken at a leisurely pace through native beech forest, with morning tea & coffee on the lake-shore to the sounds of native bird calls and surrounded by majestic mountains.

This half-day walk is our easiest walk. It combines the best of native flora and fauna, with magnificent lake and mountain views. As the flora is protected from the elements in this area, the species are much larger. ‘It’s as if we’re walking through the sentinels of the forest’. Native birds are readily seen and heard in and around the edges of the forest. You will be introduced, by your guide, to an array of edible and medicinal plants used by the early Maori and European settlers.

The track is good but uneven and winds around the lake shore with the option of a steeper climb to a lookout with magnificent views in all directions.

This is an excellent walk for people interested in birds and/or photography, and has magnificent lake and mountain views.
