Alexandra / Clyde Area

You can walk on the wild side or back in time along walkways in the Clyde and Alexandra basin. The 150th Anniversary Track and the Lake Roxburgh to Doctors Point walk both provide contrasting views and scenery alongside the mighty Clutha River. A walk around Flat Top Hill will get you up close and personal with some of the special plants and wildlife of this well preserved dryland ecosystem. For a touch of heritage and history Clyde is the place to go with an enjoyable walk down Memory Lane guaranteed.

Walk Around Historic Clyde Lake Roxburgh - Doctors Point Shaky Bridge Walking Track
Historic Clyde
Take a ramble around Historic Clyde with a ‘Walk Around Historic Clyde’ brochure. On this easy one hour walk within central Clyde you’ll soak up the atmosphere of a bygone era as you pass many original stone buildings.
Lake Roxburgh - Doctors Point
This downstream Clutha River track is in complete contrast to the upstream Anniversary Track walk. It’s a rugged, lonely landscape punctuated with relics of the past. The full return trip is 20km and the shorter trip to Butchers Point 8km.
Shaky Bridge
It’s a short, sharp but enjoyable jaunt over the aptly named Shaky Bridge and up a schist and thyme track to the Alexandra clock. Both the bridge and the illuminated hillside timepiece are local icons that are well worth inspection on foot.

150th Anniversary Walk
The 150th Anniversary Track is a popular and easily accessed walking and cycling track. It’s an easy 12.8km walk following the Clutha River upstream through the historic Earnscleugh tailings. The track, which is signposted at Alexandra 300m along Earnscleugh Road, finishes at the Clyde Bridge.
Flat Top Hill
You can follow the track or ‘freedom walk’, accessed from the Alexandra side of Butchers Dam. The main track takes about 40 minutes and has information boards along the way explaining the animals and plant life of this special dryland ecosystem.
