Waitonga Track walkway

Halfway up the Mountain Road to Turoa ski field the Dept of Conservation has built and maintained a walking track that leads up to Waitonga Falls. This is the walkway across the wetlands part way along the track.

For those fans of the Hobbit and Lord of the Rings movies, this is the area used for many of the scenes filmed on the ice and snow and also used the Beech rainforest that lies above and below these wetlands.
