Tucker Beach Trail
|Time:||30 minutes one way|
The walk is part of the Queenstown Trail and this is a wheelchair accessible section. We recommend starting at North end of the old Shotover Bridge. Make sure you stop and read the interesting information panels about the history of the bridge. The first bridge collapsed in a flood in 1915. If you look down you can still see the original piles from the demolished bridge. We walked over the bridge and up a steep section to the South car park, where we joined the Tucker Beach Trail. There are spectacular views towards Coronet Peak and down to the Shotover River. We walked as far as a second car park with big rock boulders. The rest of the track is not as interesting and has a few more steep sections.
There are accessible toilets and a picnic table at the South car park.
This is a cycle trail so be respectful of cyclists.
