Mount Sunday is a stunning site, with expansive views  of the Rangitata River and the surrounding mountains. Carved by glaciers, this hill got its name because boundary riders from the high-country stations would  meet here on Sundays. More recently it was the film site for Edoras in the movie The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers. Interpretation panels explain the importance of our remaining ‘stars’—our native fish and quinnat salmon.In contrast to Mount Sunday, get your tramping boots on and head up the Mount Potts easement track to climb Mount Potts—after the easement, there is no marked route to this high peak (2184 m)
