Mt Sunday - Edoras - Methven Mt Hutt Guide NZ

Mt Sunday Track

Mount Sunday is a stunning site with expansive views of the Rangitata River and the surrounding mountains.

The small hill got its name because boundary riders from the high-country stations would meet here on Sundays. More recently it was the film site for Edoras in the movie The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers.

Interpretation panels explain the importance of our remaining ‘stars’— our native fish and quinnat salmon.
