Kelcey's Bush - 2 Options

20 min one way | 40 min one way


Sanders Falls Walk

Track category: Walking track
Time: 20 min one way

A gentle climb and some steps take you to a viewing platform overlooking the falls. The pipe alongside the track, and at the falls, supplied Waimate’s water from 1915 to 1932 when it was discontinued following a major flood.


Intake Track

Track category: Walking track
Time: 40 min one way

This track goes upstream following Waimate Creek past Rock Pool weir. It crosses the creek several times so be prepared to get your feet wet. Thanks to Friends of Kelceys Bush there are concrete stepping stones at most crossings. The pipe alongside the track and the weir at Rock Pool are the remains of Waimate’s second water supply, which operated between 1926 and 1954.

Getting there: 

Kelceys Bush is northwest of Waimate. In Waimate turn off Queen Street (Highway 82) onto Mill Road. Follow this road to Kelceys Bush.
