Definately Sth Island but could be just about anywhere there. Will take a (wild) stab at the Upper Rees maybe?

Yep that’s the one. I think it was just a small lookout track near the top of the pass when driving through as I remember walking this with a baby in my arms.

I think I'd tuned out to the view when I went through there but it did look vaguely familiar.

NZ again...

I'm no geologist but I reckon you have the right rock :lol:

As for swimming, it was a warmish day as i recall but i didn't swim there... went for a dip downstream back at the night's camp though.

Guessing it's killer cold.
Sounds like you're on a recognised Track. Routeburn?

Someone I walked with in Tassie always talked of
Kiwi Graywake. Must have volcanic associations.

Not the Routeburn - nowhere near as popular.

This is in the same NP as the (northern half of the) Routeburn, but quite a way away from there.

You're quite likely in the Mt Aspiring NP and possibly on the Rees-Dart Track - quite challenging over 4-5 days.

Further north than Rees-Dart, and this spot is less frequented than the R-D.

I think Victoria Falls is a pretty safe bet for that one, eggs.

(Won't be back until tomorrow night; don't mind if someone else keeps the game going - if I'm correct of course!)
