Yup - its very accessible and easy walking - so like Abel Tasman - tends to get very very busy. Tenting will definitely make things more enjoyable for you.

No search button to pop up the next available booking on this new version, but pretty easy otherwise. Can book track & transport. Would pay to have it thought out beforehand if there are multiple ...
