Mount Cargill Walk

  • Walking

The Mount Cargill Walk (Bethunes Gully) traverses the flank of Mount Cargill, between Bethunes Gully and the summit. The walk passes through native bush and pine forest and alongside Lindsay Creek and a small waterfall.

At 676m tall, Mount Cargill offers some of the most spectacular views over Dunedin and the surrounding area. In Māori legend the three peaks of Mount Cargill represent the petrified head, body and feet of a princess of an early Otakou tribe.

The walkway links with a number of other walking tracks in the area.

Conditions: Open

How to get here

Mount Cargill Walk can be accessed from the Mount Cargill Summit at the end of Cowan Road or from Bethunes Gully off Norwood Street.
