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: highlight(s) how to get there grade time and full track notes. Maps are included, and a short introduction gives information on bush safety, practical considerations and information on how to use the book. Please note: Peter has personally walked every entry!
