This national park covers a large part of the Southern Alps between Christchurch and Greymouth.

The park headquarters and information centre is located in the alpine settlement of Arthur's Pass Township. We find great , camping and picnic areas, accommodation, tourist services, beautiful walking trails, a ski field, rivers and awesome waterfalls.

Here we find alpine grasses, steep gorges and luxuriant rainforests. The trail follows a secondary fault that branches from the main tectonic junction

These help us understand the operations and responsibilities of the national park work of and rules that allow national parks to undertake their protection of the geography, flora and fauna as well as encouraging visitors.

Groups sometimes encounter the inquisitive kea (worlds only alpine parrot and most intelligent animal - after humans)
