From Christchurch, drive west on State Highway 73 over Porters Pass and beyond Castle Hill Village. Our sign-posted access road (Broken River Road) is 7.5 km beyond Castle Hill Village. The 6 km unsealed, sheltered access road gently climbs through native beech forest to the main car park (Hanomag car park). Two-wheel drive cars can easily reach the car park with chains fitted. From here, the Tyndall Tram will transport you via a spectacular 4-minute ride to the ticket office. The Tram runs 8:30-11:30am and 3:30-5:30pm daily in winter.
