Franklin–Gordon Wild Rivers National Park
Back to nature
Easy walks into this national park are located just off the highway. From the Franklin River picnic area, a short stroll takes you to views of deep gorges and the formidably wild Franklin and Surprise rivers. Closer to Queenstown, the 20-minute-return Nelson Falls Nature Trail leads you between tall tree ferns and over little creeks to an impressive waterfall. Watch for information panels about the ancient forest and the animals that live here.
