Videos from the Routeburn track

10 May 2019

Here's a couple of videos of Fiordland's Routeburn track, taken last week (click each photo to play).

1. We had woken to a band of young Keas squawking around the hut at lake McKenzie, but then when I went back to check sunrise over the lake, a group of school kids began their haka to the ranger, which in conjunction with the Keas, echoed around the valley. This is a short clip from my iPhone, oh to have been there with a big video camera & proper audio gear! Turn your volume up & listen closely, it truly was a spine tingling experience.

2. Further along the track, my friend Richard & I made a detour to check out this waterfall. A stunning wee spot & it's cool how that huge boulder is wedged in the gap above the falls. You certainly wouldn't want to be standing here when that came tumbling down!
