Mount Bruce Lookout Walk
The Mt. Bruce Lookout walk can be accessed through the Pukaha Mt Bruce Visitor Centre (please note there is a charge to enter the park, see Pukaha Mt Bruce Wildlife Park below).

Allow an hour to reach the lookout where you will have a magnificent view of the surrounding area. This track is quite steep in places and good walking shoes are advisable and perhaps a drink. There are also other walking tracks in the Pukaha Mt Bruce Centre.
