Backpacker Adventure to Woolshed Creek

Woolshed Creek is a local's favourite and the perfect adventure if you want to get out of the city.

Get to know Canterbury's rugged landscape and mining past, while admiring the panoramic views along the way!

After passing the first historic mining relics, you'll climb to the top of the peaks with a complete view of the surrounding canyons. Take a moment and enjoy the silence, only disrupted by the wind and chirping of our native birds.

The track opens up onto grassy flatlands often seen in films like Lord of the Rings and leads to the cozy Woolshed Creek Hut. There you will have the chance to unwind under the afternoon sun and have a swim in the beautiful mountain river next to it.

Your Bushman can show you plenty of hidden side-trips around the hut, including a swingbridge between the canyons. Another climb leads back to the carpark, taking in stunning views over the Canterbury Plains.
