Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Easy to pull up by the bridge and take a few photographs of this gorge, waterfall and bridge. Lovely colour water and impressive size rocks!

Gates of Haast is a fancy name for gorge where the road crosses from one side of the river to the other as you head up, or down the pass. On the way up, there's decent area to pull over and take pictures on your right, before you cross the one lane bridge and hit the steepest part of the road. Nice view up the valley to the mountains beyond.

We stopped on the way to Haast from Wanaka. Parking off the bridge and walk back about 20 mtrs. Plenty of water in river.

This is a well known panoramic view of the bridge over the Haast River. It is worth a short photo stop.

The Gates of Haast bridge on SH 6 (Haast Highway) provides spectacular views of the Haast River as it cascades through a deep gorge full of boulders. The bridge can be accessed on foot, from a nearby car park, for better viewing.

My wife and I were on tour and as part of it we crossed over the bridge. The scenery around it was quite spectacular.

Unfortunately due to a massive slip there has been a fence put up so you can not go under the bridge. Massive gateway ....

We can't really imagine what this river will look and sound like in the winter/spring. It must be awesome.
