Ditto your review Honora. Visited it on Monday 24th. Almost too hot to sit in. Sandflies were active though. Walked from the main 4WD track. Tandem paraglider sailed in thermals over the main river while we were in the pool. Later in evening while we were camping by the hut they walked up after landing at the Waiau. They were tourist paragliders and had taken off from St. Arnaud earlier in the day. Were travelling light and continued to walk out. We saw a few steer down by the Waiau over Charlie’s Pass. Hope they stay down there and don’t visit the pool again.
