The East Matukituki Valley is about an hour’s drive from Wanaka, and is less well known than its neighbour, the West Matukituki Valley. The initial walk from Cameron’s Flat crosses featureless farmland, and doing this in full sun definitely took the gloss off this walk. Nevertheless, the views of the surrounding mountains are lovely, and the short section in beech forest to Glacier Burn is very picturesque. The views from the burn of Avalanche Glacier provide the money shot.
I think this is a walk to do only after you’ve done nearby alternatives like the Rob Roy Glacier Walk, (which I haven’t posted on yet – it’s coming up).
There are brief track notes and a map on the DOC website.
