Twizel River at Picnic Area

The Twizel River is monitored for recreational water quality at a picnic area located off Glen Lyon Rd to the North of the Twizel township.  This site is monitored for recreational water quality during the summer months  only.

This site is surrounded by willows. There are some picnic amenities nearby and walking tracks along the river amongst the willows. The river has some pooled areas for swimming ,and picnicing on the banks. Parking is located in an area near the road with a track down to the river.

Recreational water quality at this site is influenced by flow related spikes in E. coli. Swimming is not recommended at the site for up to 48hrs following rainfall
