Wanting a view of Tasman Lake and Glacier without paying $$$

I'm not being tight, but as we are away for 6 weeks, we need to watch the budget. On another thread, someone advised it is possible to walk to a viewpoint. Where would this be from? Will be there in September.

Thanks for any information.

DOC is the abbreviation for the Department of Conservation and part of their job is to manage the National Parks. They do some amazing work in protecting the flora and fauna of New Zealand. This government agency is charged with protecting all local natural biodiversity and their effectiveness in doing this task is the envy of many other countries in the world.

The link you gave is not for DoC but for the Tekapo I-site. An I-site is a local Information Site which give out free information, maps & bookings for visitors. Every town has one.
