Tramping The South

“Our visit to 47 degrees south has come during a seven-day trekking tour on the South Island — a round trip taking in Queenstown, Milford Sound, Stewart Island and the Catlins, a region hunkered along the south-eastern coast,” The Age’s Leonie Lamont writes. “We’ll stay in motels in towns and self-contained cabins bordering alpine and coastal wilderness areas and have a taste of the country’s walks, including the stunning Kepler Track. We skirt alongside the Waiau River, through wetlands and mires, until we emerge to see Lake Manapouri, framed by snow-capped mountains. As the waves lap on the stony beach, we sip tea made on a camping stove.”
