General Comments

A journey of a lifetime!

Food/Supplies Comments

I had it relatively easier than most walkers as my parents caught up with me in the towns. Great support, and great family ‘holiday’.

Favourite Section

Mt Cooke, and the coastal sections


Finishing the track !

I had a fear of snakes before the BIB, but now respect them, and actually look forward to seeing snakes on track.
