General Comments

Had a fantastic hike and met many lovely people along the way.  Thoroughly enjoyed the track towns, cafe’s and pubs!

Food/Supplies Comments

Great to see feed the hike and strive in the visitor centres.

Favourite Section

Denmark to Walpole, had a bit of everything.


Coastal ridge walks, tall trees and mountain summits.



Your Best Equipment

Insulated cooking pots

Your Worst Equipment

Sea to Summit inflatable beds, we both had leaks!  Required re-inflating every hour by the end.

Advice for Others

Enjoy the walking day by day.  Don’t chase the destination as it will appear all too soon.
