The walkway alongside the Clyde river

 

 

The Junction Carpark is adjacent to a large public reserve with a long walking track by the Clyde river.

 

We visited it on a fine autumn afternoon, and the view over the Clutha river was just stunning! 

 

Just beside the lookout are the remains of a building that was built as a home in 1866. The whole area was a thriving gold mining area at the time.

 

You are not allowed to park overnight, and there is not a lot of room to do so anyway. But this is a choice spot to stop for lunch, or to go for a walk along the river footpath.
