The ODT reports:
The Department of Conservation is working on plans for a Great Walk near Queenstown, the country’s 10th.
The proposed three day route is through the spectacular scenery of nearby Mt Creighton Station.
The ”Moonlight Trail” is part of a mooted trade off between the Government and the company which owns the perpetual lease for the 15,000ha station.
It is detailed in documents obtained under the Official Information Act from the Overseas Investment Office, which has rubber stamped the deal. Documents state: ”It is likely to become one of the best walks in New Zealand.”
So far I’ve done five of the nine Great Walks and two more scheduled for early next year leaving just Lake Waikaremoana and Routeburn. So be great to have a 10th one after those!
