Diamond Lake Walk

Today’s walk took us firstly to Diamond Lake on the road just past Glendhu Bay, Lake Wanaka, and then on up Rocky Hill (777m) where we took in some fantastic views of Lake Wanaka. The walk was impressive for how quickly it rose above road level. That’s a nice way of saying ‘this was one steep’ walk! However, the views were brilliant. DOC has done some great work putting in wooden steps to help get up and over some of the steeper sections of the climb.

When we left the car park there were 4 vehicles but when we returned 3 hours later that number had risen to 20 – obviously a very popular walk. For some, the 10 minute walk to the lake for a picnic would be a satisfying day out.
