Description

The northern circuit is an extension of the Glenorchy Lagoon Boardwalk - Southern Circuit that leads through more wetland around the lagoon. Most of the trail is on the wooden boardwalk with great views of the lagoon itself and the surrounding mountains.

Flora & Fauna

Native species include pied stilt/poaka, South Island pied oystercatcher/torea, Australasian bittern/matuku, New Zealand shoveller/kuruwhengu, grey teal/tete (in spring), grey duck/parera, and scaup/papango. The New Zealand falcon/karearea may be seen soaring above the wetland hunting for prey.
