What You'll Do Today
Woolshed Creek marks a full day adventure past rhyolite cliffs, historic mines and panoramic lookouts over remote Canterbury. It’s one of those classic walks most locals decide to head out on the night before – given that it’s so accessible and enjoyable.
The track is blessed with a mixture of terrain and views, making it dynamic and interesting. After passing the first mining relics (great for some good family photos), the track opens up onto grassy flatlands often seen in movies like Lord of the Rings. Within an hour, you’ll be at the top of the peaks with a complete view of the surrounding canyons, and even the view of the Woolshed Creek Hut in the distance – we’ll see how many others are there (if any) and make a decision on the afternoon’s activities, whether that be the swingbridges, water caves or emerald pools that litter the mountains.
The cosy hut among rocky outcrops and a beautiful mountain river (good enough to drink) offers the chance to unwind under the afternoon sun, have a swim, and have lunch with a view.
The area is famous for its caving and dramatic canyons – there are plenty of hidden side trips around the hut if you haven’t had enough adventure yet!
I make sure my tours are customisable and flexible. Bushman Tours isn’t just your average day out, it’s a local’s day out, so make sure to chat with me about your wants and needs upon booking.
