This 8km walk follows an internationally renowned natural spit of boulders.

The track goes from Boulder Bank Drive to ‘The Cut’.  It takes 2 to 3 hours one way and is an unformed track.  You’ll be making your way ontop and over large boulders.  The Boulder Bank is rough, dry and very exposed, so be prepared for all kinds of weather and wear strong shoes.

Access to the Boulder Bank is from Boulder Bank Drive (off Atawhai Drive (SH6)) or by boat from Nelson.  A ferry service is available from Nelson.

Walking and tramping:

  • 2hr to 3hr one way
  • Dogs on a leash only
