Fern Burn Hut is an easy 2 hour walk at the start of the Motatupu walking track from the Glendu Bay end at Wanaka. It starts off in relatively uninteresting farm land before entering a magnificent beech forest. Fern Burn hut is very new (opened in Nov 2008) and is a very high standard with insulated. polished floor and double glazed windows.

Rob Roy Glacier is probably one of the top short walks in New Zealand and allows you to get very close to the glacier if you continue past the lookout.
