Mt Alfred Track in Glenorchy Queenstown


Trails:  Mt Alfred Track and return. Unfortunately we couldn’t get to the Mt Alfred Summit due to the gale and showers.

Car Park: Yes. About one hour drive from Queenstown city centre.
Public Toilet: No
Weather: Check Queenstown Weather before you go.

The “Total Time” is my time in April (25/04/15) which includes morning tea and lunch time. That day was cloudy, windy and had few light showers. If you slow down to average 1.8 km/h plus 60 min stop then the total time will be around 4:45 hrs. Will take longer if you go further to the summit.
