Queenstown Hill Time Walk

Moderate hike from town (2-3hrs)

Basket of Dreams by Caroline Robinson

A favourite with locals, hike up to the track from town or park in the small car park in Belfast Tce and start there.

Climb up through pine forest to the summit of Te Tapunui and the ‘Basket of Dreams’ statue.

There are a number of information plates along the way and 360-degree views from the top.

This track can be walked year-round, though check weather forecasts before heading up there in winter.
