Heaphy Track Information

Heaphy River Mouth from the air

From ancient Beech forest to alpine tussock downlands to palm fringed wild beaches, the Heaphy Track traverses a diverse range of landscapes and vegetation. Though the longest of New Zealand's 9 Great Walks, the track is well graded and achievable by anyone with moderate fitness. Accommodation is of a high standard with three new huts built between 2012-2014.

If you need advice with planning any aspect of your journey, please contact us—we can help!
