Southland is a walking paradise, from gentle short walks to a range of

outstanding multi day hikes – there is a track for everyone. For those

after something less strenuous, Southland offers excellent short walks,

designed to be enjoyed in a more leisurely way. Short walks provide a

great way to get out and explore some of the best of natural Southland

without the need for tramping boots or heavy packs.

There is an extensive range of options throughout the region and all

walks will take between 15 minutes to 4 hours. The tracks are generally

well formed and maintained. Make sure you dress for changeable

weather and wear appropriate outdoor walking footwear.
