The Heaphy Track is one of New Zealand's great walks and is suitable for hikers of all ages. It is 82 km long, crossing a range of landscapes in a small part of Kahurangi National Park. Tussock covered downs, river flats, lush forest and the scenic West Coast, rugged in beauty and diverse in nature. The nikau groves that tower the last part of the Heaphy Track at the Karamea Side make it especially beautiful.

The distances between the huts vary from 8 - 16 kms and most huts accommodate 20-30 trampers. Designated campsites are also provided. Beds are on a first come first served basis. The track takes about 4 days and 3 nights for the average tramper. Hut tickets must be purchased before you start the track and can be purchased from any DOC office or Information Centre.
