An easy flat hour walk around the very pretty lagoon. Right in Glenorchy so no extra driving. Just don't expect anything aerobic.

This is an easy, short walk with pleasant views. Well worth the short stroll. Easy to find from the main road in Glenorchy, or ask the friendly women at the Trading Post and they will direct you.

This was a great walk to do on a sunny morning in Glenorchy. The boardwalk is well maintained and the views are spectacular. Took us about 45 minutes for the shorter loop. Well worth it!
