Above:  Rainbow Reach of the Waiau River, taken from the swingbridge which crosses the river to the start of the Kepler Track.

The Kepler Track runs beside the Waiau River between Manapouri and Te Anau. The alpine sections of the track close for winter but we had the chance to walk on this short portion near the river.
