Follow the road to the Tasman Valley, a few minutes out of Mount Cook village, and park at the blue lakes car park (where there are toilets and a public shelter). Follow the track past the blue lakes and keep climbing to obvious viewing area at the top of the hill.
If you decide to explore the moraine below the viewpoint, take care as it is very steep and many of the large rocks are unstable. It is about a half hour scramble along the moraine to the Glacier Explorers boat landing to the south east, from where you can loop back to the car park on a well formed track.
It is a steep track with steps that will take about 15 minutes.
