“A lookout not to be missed”

The latest east-west development was the Otira Viaduct, which was officially opened in 1999. This impressive engineering feat soars above the steep gorge and tight zig-zags of the old road. Call into the viaduct lookout at ‘Deaths Corner’ to see the old and new roads and learn of their history. Kea—our mischievous mountain parrot—will no doubt be waiting at this lookout to check out you and your car. Cute and friendly as they are, don’t feed them unless you really want to make them sick or even kill them—in which case you could well be prosecuted for intentionally harming protected wildlife.
