Golden sands, hidden inlets, native forest and secluded beaches, our Great Walks are certainly picturesque. Here’s a quick guide to each one.
1. Abel Tasman Coast Track
Routinely touted as NZ’s most beautiful Great Walk , it is also the country’s most popular, located in its smallest national park. Great weather, granite cliffs, golden sands and a bushy backdrop are just part of its allure, so packed is this track with delightful surprises.
Spot seals and birds, explore fascinating estuaries, hidden inlets and freshwater pools, study strange rock formations and significant trees… but it’s equally acceptable to just laze around on your beach towel. Water taxis and kayak trips offer endless options for maximising enjoyment.
2. Tongariro Northern Circuit
The dynamic, dramatic features of Tongariro National Park are celebrated in its status as a Unesco World Heritage Area.
