Mt Arthur one day walk

Much of the Mt Arthur walk is a gradual climb through rich subalpine tussock fields.

The Flora car park and lookout, at 945m, is one of the most popular access points to the park. From here a well graded track leads through the beech forest to the bush edge and the Mt Arthur hut.

A poled route continues up the main ridge to the summit (1,795m). In the forest you will see groves of Mountain Neinei (Dracophyllum traversii), Tree Daisy (Oleria lacunosa), and some Mountain Cedar. Above the hut is a karst (limestone) landscape. For the less adventurous who don't wish to summit, we will take a closer look at the alpine flora, laze in the sun whilst eating your prepared picnic lunch taking in the magnificent vistas, and walk down another track to the Flora Hut. Completing a circuit back to the car park.

The 'Friends of Flora' conservation project can be seen en route. Read about this on our conservation page and current newsletter.
