Tarn on Tara Tama Range

Tarn on Tara Tama Range

This Westland range has many nice tarns. This is one of the nicer ones IMO. It is situated on the ridge section between Scottys & Griffin Creeks.

If looking south east you can photograph reflections of Mt Tara Tama in this tarn. This view however is from a different direction looking north over Mt McInerney, the Taramakau River and the flanks of the Hohonu Range toward Lake Brunner.

I passed this tarn twice on the day of the photo which was taken in the afternoon. Early morning when I was there I spooked two chamois beside the tarn.



  • Honora Honora I've camped here a couple of times for unsuccessful climbs of Tara Tama. We climbed it successfully from Dunns Ck hut though.
