Want to hike one of the quietest Great Walks of New Zealand? Then the Heaphy Track is calling. Four days, just under 80km and barely another soul in sight.
You'll hike through forest alive with birdsong, open plains, over rivers, beaches and even lush tropical vegetation. Along the way you can look out for carnivorous snails, kiwi and even the rare blue duck, whio.
It's a walk to remember, here are some of our favourite photos to inspire you to hike the Heaphy Track.
