Mt Aspiring National Park

Discover this very special World Heritage Area

Striking landforms, from soaring mountains to tranquil river flats, make exploring Mt Aspiring National Park an unforgettable experience. Climb, tramp, ski or just take in the spectacle… it’s your choice. 

Mt Aspiring itself is the magnificent 3,033m centrepiece of a spectacle that sparkles with glaciers, waterfalls, braided rivers and hectares of lush native beech forest.

Whether you choose a seat in a helicopter or jet boat, a stout stick and walking boots or a set of crampons, you’ll find Mt Aspiring National Park is the sort of place they invented the word ‘awesome’ for.
