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.
Sleepy little Picton town, where we caught a water taxi to take us to Cook’s Cove the start of the Queen Charlotte Track.
Stephanie at the Cook’s Cove – the start of the track. From here we walked for three days back to Anakiwa.
I can’t say enough about how nice the views were.
The track is beautiful condition, very well maintained and sign posted.
