      The track entrance is 5 km down Waipori Falls Rd on
      the right; parking is 100 m further on the left. Traversing the slopes of the beech-and mānuka-forested Waipori Valley south of Dunedin, the Government Track was built in the 1860s to provide access to the central goldfields. For mountain bikers there is an option of riding up and returning the same way. Alternatively, once at the top follow the pylon track left and steeply down into Waipori township, then follow the road back to the start.

      Primary Trail Type: Cross-Country
      Access Info:
      From the flood free SH1, turn onto the Henley-Berwick Road. At Berwick School turn right, then left onto Waipori Falls Road.

      Shortly before you reach the first bridge across the Waipori River, you'll see a DOC sign "Government Track" on the right. There is a car park 100m further on the left if you need it.
