Week Nineteen: Lower Shotover River

The Shotover River is the only river that flows out of Lake Wakatipu. As a braided river, the water frequently chages course, particularly after heavy rains. A branch called the Lower Shotover is spanned by a road bridge half-way between the Frankton Arm and Lake Wakatipu, but the original 'historic' footbridge was restored recently. A trail beside the river makes for a pleasant afternoon outing.
