Hi friends We are doing the Heaphy track **East to West**, going in on 29/12, and out on 1/1/20. Looking for anyone doing it over these dates going the other way that would like to swap cars ...
take away the cooking and dining area at the front and the balconies and the perspex
Made it last Friday and had an awesome trip with our 5yo and now 3yo. Weather was PERFECT. Thanks for all the advice, found the shortcut no problems :-) Three others in the hut

organised in advance. I guess you could take your chances, but I would almost book earlier in the offseason just because we were the only 2 people being ferried that day. So potentially the boat ...

Thanks for the feedback guys, that's exactly what I needed. I'll keep an eye on the forecast and look into the Ruahines and Kawekas as a backup.
You will really have a lovely walk and it would be good to go in summer. As the rocks in the river be too slippery you better carry a stick. IF you wish you can ...
I don't know about quite a bit, but maybe a little more difficult. I was glad to rest at Dunn's Ck on the way through as I had come from Julia Hut (not too much ...

Douglas Pass is just a dawdle, or you can make a round trip by climbing The Gladiator. Get yourself a copy of Moirs Guide North for everything you ever wanted to know about the Landsborough
I take guided day trips up there, and as far as bang for your buck goes, you really can't go past a simple stroll down to the Tasman Glacier lake where the river starts. A ...
DOC wanted to get a great walk in in the north for easier access for the bigger population... easier said than done since there's a lot of conditions that need to be met to qualify ...

Thanks for the advice. I haven't tried DoC yet as my success rate has been low over the years (often no-one answers the phone), but will give them a ring closer to the date. These ...
Hi there, I'm looking to do some tramping in the Tangihua forest within the next few weeks. Has anyone been there recently that can offer some information on the condition of the tracks, especially the ...

Hi Gregor I remember the trig on the summit of Phyllis Fell and I see there is a trig marked on Spot Height 1582. When we were there it was an October and spring flowers were ...
I've done the track twice and both times hiked north to Wanui Bay from Marahau, but would actually recommend the reverse, ending at Wanui Bay is pretty meh, then you need to wait for your ...
Thanks @Ian_H and @Yarmoss Looks like I'll think about doing this later in the year getting closer to summer.
@izogi Yes that's Pinnacle Spur alright. The contour lines match up perfectly.

I reckon it would be possible as there are no restrictions on camping along the trail except in Northland I think. Others will be better informed than I am. You can check the official Te ...
My understanding is that groups of hunters are only allowed to stay at the hut for 3 days in a row and must otherwise camp when others are there and want the bunks. Because of ...

When I did it we went from east to west which I think is great because walking down next to the beach is a beautiful way to finish the trip. What I would not recommend is ...
