Don't have an exact lat/lon, but this is roughly centered on the summit: Google map. Guess lat=-42.94 lon=171.54 would work.

As a general statement, NZ campervans are free to camp anywhere except where posted. There are numerous spots around town. Visitor Center would work. There's a great spot at the trailhead for the Mount Beelah track, just a bit south of the visitor center and a short distance up the road toward the police station.

Additional routes and exact coordinates

Hi Andre,

In addition to the Avalanche Peak Track and Scott's Track, I know of two more routes:

  • Along the south ridge from Mt Bealey and Lyell Peak. This route is in fact mentioned on the Lyell Peak and Mount Bealey pages.
  • The descent to Crow Hut.

    Looking at my map as well as using Google, I've determined the coordinates as -42.94307, 171.53598.

    And as a final remark, you might consider making this page a child of the Southern Alps page. Although that page needs some work, attaching Avalanche Peak would at least make it easier to find. Of course, it would be much better if someone would write a good area page about Arthur's Pass National Park ...

    Andre, someone has mistakenly made this page PARENT of the Southern Alps instead of a child. As a result, the Southern Alps are a child of Avalanche and show up as a sub-range of Avalanche Peak! You can easily fix that. So could the Southern Alps page owner, but he's long gone from SP.
