The Mātukituki River valley is home to a ski resort (Treble Cone), a jetboat operator (River Journeys) and numerous tramping trails providing access to landmarks such as the Rob Roy Glacier and the Dart Saddle.
The Mātukituki River is a short braided river in the Southern Alps of New Zealand's South Island. Both its West Branch and East Branch originate from the Main Divide mountain ranges near Mount Aspiring / Tititea. The unsealed Wanaka - Mount Aspiring Road follows the river's true right for most of its course, past the confluence of the East Branch and West Branch, and part-way along the West Branch to a Department of Conservation NZ car park at the Raspberry Creek shelter.
The most popular walk in the area is the Rob Roy Glacier walk, which leads up a side valley to a view point beneath Rob Roy Glacier. The walking track crosses the Mātukituki River West Branch over a swing bridge.
