recently enjoyed an introduction to NZ walks! All very well signed etc. Queen Charlotte walk as far as Davies bay was lovely, very pretty, lots of good photo shoots.

“bucket list”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

This is a great track for hiking and biking. biking season finishes end of nov and this was the last week. the track is narrow in places and challenging for grade 2-4. front loaded with uphills (and pushing - everyone pushes at some point) from ships bay to picton; the trail has everything, dirt, forest,peaks, rock, scree. viewpoints and toilets along the way (not sure mrs would use the toilets), but its a doable series of day trek/ride. loadges along make quality rest bite and there plenty of them.

“Great walk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

Stunning views and easy access - shame the department of conservation have decided to charge to complete the full walk - but worth walking to Davis Bay which is free and taking time to paddle in the warm Queen Charlotte waters.

“Amazing experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

I would strongly recommend doing this walk! The views are breathtaking, getting away from it all for 3 days is awesome, I camped along the way which was great but you can also stay in hostels or hotels if you prefer. The luggage portage system makes things much easier. If your thinking about doing it I would say just go for it!
