Enjoy a stunning, spectacular, diverse and enriching experience, a feast for the senses.

Banks Track takes you through forest, over hill and along coast. You can see a wide variety of flora and fauna including penguin, dolphin, tītī, bellbird, tūī, seal, fantail, tomtit, morepork, falcon and kereru before you spend your evening either stargazing in our dark skies or enjoying the warmth and camaraderie of a cosy fire.

The accommodation is original, comfortable, varied, quirky, “rustic luxury” and it is never crowded as there are only 16 walkers on the track at any given time.
