  • We struck a glorious day in late May to do this scenic walk. The track was superbly maintained and the views were to die for. A great way to spend 3 hours in Kaikoura.  more »
  • A real gem! The coast is lovely but the best part is the day 2 hike through the hills which affords wonderful views in all directions. Also enjoyed the beach house which has a wood stove in which...  more »
  • This two day tramp on private farmland is superb. The two farm cottages you stay in are lovely, and the food provided (if you take this option) is wonderful. The walking is amazing too, with a...  more »

  • We loved the track, we were in total awe of all the work that has gone into making the track. We were in matai heaven with the mature trees. On the walk along the beach we felt that Hector dolphins kept pace with us. Wee felt well looked after and taken care of.
  • Absolutely wonderful, highly recommended! We loved the walk, the accommodation and we were lucky to meet and talk to all four of the people behind the track! Normally it is hard to walk through farms in this manner so that was interesting in itself throw into that the many other diverse geological features, flora and fauna as well as the history and there's quite a lot to talk about on the walk! My mum and I did the walk 10 years ago, it was terrific to return and see the changes. Thanks so much to you all for making us feel so welcome at your place. Julie and Jo Franz Josef
  • A fantastic two days with friends, enjoying the scenery and the generosity of our hosts who were there to answer questions and offer assistance. The weather was wet but the "huts" warm and cosy. Hot showers were a definite bonus. Thanks so much for the opportunity to walk across your land and see the regenerating bush with some fantastic specimens of mature native trees. We are looking forward to coming again and experiencing the walk without the rain.
  • This was an excellent weekend away. We drove from Christchurch after work on Friday and spent the night in the beachside accommodation. It was basic, but homely and comfortable. The next day we walked all day to the next night's accommodation. The walk was wonderful and varied. We had good weather. The accommodation was in an superb location on a working farm. We relaxed overlooking some amazing scenery. The second day of walking began with a van ride of about 20 mins. During the journey, Heather gave us a running commentary. This was informative and entertaining. The walk was up and over a range of hills. The views were spectacular. I thoroughly recommend this track.
  • Very successful and enjoyable tramp in perfect weather. Not too easy or too difficult for a 78 year old. A great way to reconnect with the bush and farmland of the South Island outdoors. Walk directions were clear and well posted. Very impressed with the relaxed way in which the farm owners looked after us and in our case provided more than enough of farm cooked meals. I would recommend the walk to anyone, Kiwi or tourist. Tim Jerram
