The Waitangitaona Wetland Walk is an easy walk through a regenerating kahikatea forest and flax wetland to a viewing platform with spectacular views of the Southern Alps, Kā Tiritiri o te Moana.

Waitangitaona Wetland Walk is best walked on a good day, when the viewing platforms provide visitors with spectacular views of the Southern Alps Kā Tiritiri o te Moana and the wider wetland area.
