Great views of Lake Hawea and the surrounding mountains
The Grandview Mountain Track (previously known as Grandview Creek Track) gives access to the vast Grandview Range.
Pockets of kānuka shrub land merge with the pastoral land on the lower section of the track before opening up to the tussock land that dominates the tops. Climbing steadily the track passes several small remnant beech forests on the opposite side of the creek, before reaching the station boundary at 1260 m then Grandview Mountain at 1398 m; an elevation gain of 958 m from the car park.
Trampers are rewarded with stunning panoramic views over Lake Hāwea, the pastoral flats through to Lake Wanaka and local peaks. On a clear day, Mt Aspiring / Tititea’s distinct profile can be seen on the horizon.
Closed for lambing, mid-September to end of October. Check track status with Department of Conservation. Not recommended in winter.
