Mt Judah Track - Whakaari Conservation Area

2–3 hours one way

From the car park on the Queenstown–Glenorchy Road, three kilometres before Glenorchy, an easy climb leads up onto the  old Mt Judah Road which sidles around the northern side of  Mt Judah. The track passes the remains of the Glenorchy Scheelite Battery and the State Mine, last operated in the 1960s. The Bonnie Jean Hut (day use only) is a half-hour climb up a marked track from the end of the old Mount Judah Road. Ten minutes before Bonnie Jean Hut, a short signposted track leads  to The Boozer Hut, relocated and restored in 2011.
