Turn off SH8 Quailburn Rd, 4km North of Omarama. The road changes from sealed to gravel and it is soon after this change – on the right hand side – where the track begins.
Drive carefully as this is part of the Alps 2 Ocean Cycle Trail. The initial part of this track is a public access easement along a formed road. Climb over the stile to enter the conservation area. Head east to find the kettleholes which are down in depressions. These kettleholes provide an important feeding area for several important bird species including the endangered kakī/black stilt.
