Queen Charlotte Track

The Queen Charlotte track is located at the top of the South Island in New Zealand. It is one of the nicest walk’s I have ever done. I did it in 2009 together with my wife Stephanie. We walked independently and camped. Learn more about the track by clicking here.

The finish line is at Anakiwa - home of New Zealand's outward bound school which I attended many years ago.
