St Bathans / New Zealand’s secret blue lake

St Bathans Blue Lake St Bathans Blue Lake

An easy one hour walk along the spectacular cliffs and sluiced areas with iron remnants still scattered around. This track runs from opposite the Vulcan around the side of the Blue Lake.

Lose track of time in a quaint historic town that’s barely changed since the gold rush days. In 1887, Saint Bathans was a bustling town with around 2,000 miners living in the immediate vicinity. Some of the buildings from that era remain today and little else has been added since, so it’s very easy to imagine the town as it was during the gold rush.
