Seven becomes three as New Zealand takes a step towards adding another Great Walk.
The Department of Conservation announced on Thursday that the Queen Charlotte Track, in the Marlborough Sounds, Te Paki Coastal Track, in Northland, and Hump Ridge Track, in Southland, had made it through to the final round.
All great walks.
If you were deciding purely on scenery I’d say you’d go for Queen Charlotte. Amazing views of water and bush. Would also be a real boon for Picton.
Hump Ridge is a loop track which makes it easier for people to do. It is in Fiordland though which already has three great walks.
Don’t know much about Te Paki but if you want geographical balance will be a contender as North Island has so few Great Walks.
