Manapouri - High Bluff Falls, Stockyard Cove

Manapouri - High Bluff Falls, Stockyard Cove

Two pleasant, short walking tracks in Hope Arm on Lake Manapouri, leading to either West Beach or the waterfalls above the cove.

The two easy tracksĀ take 45 minute to 1 hour to complete. They both start and finish at the head of Stockyard Cove at the western entrance to Hope Arm. To get there you must travel across Lake Manapouri by water taxi, private boat or kayak.

The first heads west to West Beach where there are rewarding views of Lake Manapouri, while the second passes through ancient podocarp forest, climbing briefly until reaching the high bluff waterfalls and then descending through mountain beech forest to the lake edge. This track is also known as the Waterfall Track. It is advisable to return to Stockyard Cove following the same track as the foreshore is rocky, slippery and parts of it can be underwater if the lake level is high.
