Are you looking at any specific area? A few recommendations out there for good 3 day winter tramps.
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 ...
Thanks @Ian_H and @Yarmoss Looks like I'll think about doing this later in the year getting closer to summer.

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 ...

Was wondering what had happened to you, saw your entry in Maropea Forks a day before us. Our route from there was Otukota, MP range, Crow, McKinnon, Waterfall... Shame you ...
