The Clay Cliffs are located approximately 10 km west of the little town of Omarama in New Zealand. The Clay Cliffs are a stark sight – tall pinnacles separated by narrow ravines.
These otherworldly formations are made up of layers of gravel and silt, originally formed by the flow from ancient glaciers over a million years ago.
There’s an easy walk of about 100 metres to the start of the Cliffs, and then, with no designated track to follow, you can poke around them and explore the slot canyon into the centre, admiring the fluted shapes of the tall columns and the beautiful pastel colours.
🚘To get to the Clay Cliffs, turn onto Quailburn Rd off SH8 and then onto unsealed Henburn Rd.
