Enjoy a short walk from the top of the Pelorus Bridge down to the crystal clear river below.
In the map above, if you zoom in on the walk, you’ll see all the following track points and their location. Each point has photos along with a description about each one.
The track to the river is on the down river side of the road. Right hand side of the road if you are driving to Nelson. At the very end of the bridge’s safety rail. You can park on both sides of the road. The best parking is in the main car park on the left if you are driving to Nelson. The toilets and cafe are in the main car park. There are two camping areas at Pelorus Bridge and plenty of walks to suit all fitness levels. It is only a 5 minute walk down to the gorge as you can see it is a very popular swimming hole.
