Your Walk Guide to Climb Mt Owen

Climbing Mt Owen is one of the greatest day walks anywhere. Here is a quick guide on how to safely have the most memorable time.

Tip : Don't walk up the shuttle road. It's long, there are bike shuttles, technicians and other vehicles associated with the various communications assets using it.

  • 1. Get Here. The first step is easy. Make your way to Queenstown by driving yourself (see our driving tips on this site), minibus charter or an exclusive VIP service [click here to learn more].  If flying is more your style, fly into Strahan or Queenstown and the shuttle service can meet you at either airport. [click here to learn more]

Strahan airport ground transport
  • 2. Eat & Sleep. Queenstown has many accommodation and dining options. Find the best ones on this site. Check out The Paragon theatre for some after dinner entertainment.

  •  3. Begin your ascent. There's two ways to approach this. You can set off from the well signposted 'Horsetail falls walk' at Karlson's Gap. When you get to the end of the 600m boardwalk continue on and follow the track to the top of the falls, then follow the track up the ridge all the way to the plateau. Or - you can get the 4x4 shuttle from The Paragon to the Mt Owen spur 850m up leaving you the last 300m to climb.

  • 4. Now that you're up there. Be sure to check out the high cave just under the plateau. There is a chute at the rear that leads to the top. Once you're on the plateau, look to the west for 'Don't knock the rock', one of the many interesting conglomerate rock formations. As you stroll along the plateau you will see Berry's Tarn just below to the east. At the Southern end of the plateau walk you will come to the summit trig' point.

  • 5. Timing is everything. Make a glorious descent bathed in the golden light of the sunset over the Southern Ocean and catch the shuttle pick up on the Owen spur.
