A rugged range rising to 1019 metres (3280ft) forming a natural barrier between the river valleys of the Clutha and Pomahaka, lying between the towns of Lawrence and Tapanui.

Fantastic nature walks and breath-taking panoramic views galore at this stunning spot.

The Blue Mountains have one of the largest herds of wild deer in the south, with hunting allowed on DOC (Department of Conservation) land.

The southern end of this mountain range is one of the best places in the country to see the rare Mohua, also known as the Yellowhead or Yellow Bush Canary.
