Brodrick Hut – Brodrick Pass

This poled route is marked on the eastern side of the main divide to Brodrick Pass. An unmarked route accesses the Landsborough via McKenzie Creek. It is also possible to cross from the South Huxley valley into the Ahuriri and South Temple valleys.

Getting there

The Mackenzie Basin is situated in the centre of New Zealand's South Island. It features mountains, lakes, rivers, beech forest remnants and rolling tussock country.

Most of the routes mentioned here are relatively easy to access and take the tramper into some wonderful high country.
