The famous 'mirror lake' can be found about 6km down Cook Flat Rd. Wandering slowly (as you should), it will take 1½ hours to complete the circuit. The best time to visit is early morning, or when the sun is low in the late afternoon, although the presence of the Matheson Cafe means that any time is a good time.

At the far end of the circuit – on a clear day – you may, just may, get the money shot, but failing that you can buy a postcard at the excellent gift store by the car park.
