Explore old moraine surfaces on this easy, short walk, south of Fox Glacier township.
This walk takes you over old moraine surfaces and dramatically reveals how quickly plants establish here and how the age of the bush reflects the various ages of the glacial moraines which it has colonised.
The walk begin on a surface several thousand years old and crosses and AD1600 and AD1750 moraines.
