“The only punt of its kind in the southern hemisphere using the flow of the river to cross from one side to the other.”

Tuapeka Mouth is a beautiful area at the junction of the Clutha and Tuapeka Rivers, with great fishing and river walks. Following the gold rush at Lawrence in 1861 crowds of miners worked all the way down the Tuapeka River to Tuapeka Mouth in search of gold. The Clutha River was later dredged for gold for many years with indifferent results. Tuapeka Mouth was an inland port for paddle wheel steamers to and from Balclutha for about 30 years until 1939.

Foot passengers are welcome, and some motorhomes may be able to use it, although weight restrictions apply. The punt operates every day between 8am and 10 a.m. and 4 and 6 p.m, river level permitting.
