Rough water and mud-filled bogs. 26km over two days. Madly, we loved it.

A new and different adventure: Kayaking the Abel Tasman
Another three gorgeous days in the Abel Tasman, this time kid-free and on the water. Here’s our tips for making the most of it.
Great Walking: The Abel Tasman Coastal Track
3 nights, 4 days in the heaven that is the Abel Tasman. We can’t wait to go back.
All the way around: Tongariro Northern Circuit
2 nights, 3 days, a long weekend with a super early start.
Great Walking: The Milford Track
An adventure many years in the making – a challenge and its rewards
Solo Camping – with a twist!
An overnight on Matiu-Somes Island, with fireworks on the harbour and 5 little blue penguins was my idea of bliss!
Cooking on Fire!
Mid Winter usually means hiding away indoors. Not for our Tramping Club Families Group! We’re working on building a tradition of a mid-winter cook out!
Milford Track – Teaser
An adventure we’ve waited YEARS to be in a position to actually do – finally on the cards!
ANZAC Weekend Camping
The downside of camping in Autumn is that you have limited daylight hours.
We had a choice – first morning sun, or last afternoon sun – for our tent site. We opted for last afternoon sun. Which meant the inside of our tent was still cold (and the outside still damp), until the sun arrived around 11:30am. However, we also kept the sunshine until after 4pm. Other than one foggy morning and one breezy evening, we had still, calm, clear weather for 4 straight days.
Much more challenging than expected
The Queen Charlotte Track nearly broke me. It DID break my boots! Rain, massive distances (34km in a day), heat, we had it all. And then we got to see Dolphins on our way back to Picton.
