Excellent Short Walks In The South Island
Wherever you are in the South Island you're sure to be within reach of a short walk with an excellent destination. Peter Janssen has picked more than 250 short but memorable walks throughout the mainland and Rakiura/Stewart Island.
All walks will suit those who enjoy walking but do not want a long tramp with heavy boots and a pack, or travellers who are short on time and those with young families. Every walk includes a highlight, whether it's an historic landmark such as goldminers' cottages in Arrowtown; a spectacular feature of the landscape, such as the Fox Glacier; nature in the raw, such as penguin colonies on the Otago coast; or simply an unbeatable view.
Each description includes:
- how to get there
- grade and duration ... and track notes where they're needed.
