Worth a quick stop to take in this engineering feat from the lookout. Also an opportunity to spot Keas.

The Otira viaduct is an extraordinary achievement and well worth stopping after staying at the extraordinary historical Otira Stagecoach hotel.

Great place to stop to take in the great views of the viaduct and surrounding area. I remember traveling many times on the old road through the gorge and the zig zag tight corners, fun times! The road to the parking area is part of the old road and once parked up, you can see where it used to go. There is big boulders blocking the way and is overgrown but it gives you a sense of where it used to go. You may encounter a kea or two at the lookout if you're lucky. Best seen on a nice day. If you keep going West bound there is another place to stop to take in another section of the road that has a waterfall going over the road.

The tour features the TranzAlpine train from Greymouth to Christchurch and we were also driven around in a group with AATKings to appreciate the scenery.

Great spot to stop and view the Otira viaduct construction
Keas wee cheeky and kept all the visitors entertained. Don’t stray too far from your car or motorcycle or the Keas will have a field day
