New Zealand is a beautiful country and offers some tremendous tramping. Look at these photos and see for yourself. The links below will take you to an index of the photos for that trip. Clicking on the thumbprint will display a larger version of the photo.

Upper Cobb & Lake Sylvester
Rafting in the Upper Cobb while waiting for the weather to improve - it didn't! So we went to Lake Sylvester above the Cobb Dam - February 2009.

Mount Owen
Mount Owen is a fascinating limestone area in Kahurangi National Park. This time cloud covered the tops so we aim to return in good weather - February 2009.

1000 Acre Plateau
This intriguing area includes the 1000 Acre and 100 Acre Plateaux. Located in the southern part of Kahurangi National Park is well worth a visit. Both plateaux are surrounded by high cliffs - March 2009.

Lake Chalice-Rintoul-Old Man
This trip started with a climb of Mt Patriarch then dropping down to Lake Chalice we carried on to Old Man Hut via the Goulter River. From here we climbed Little Mt Rintoul then went on to Old Man Peak and back to the Lake by Chalice Knob - March 2009.

Gordons Pyramid
Our first attempt on Gordons Pyramid in the Mt Arthur area was frustrated by very strong cold southerly wind. Enough to blow you over. We went back in good weather and enjoyed a pleasant trip. From the Pyramid we dropped down Gridiron Creek to Cloustons Mine, the Gridiron rock shelter and back to Flora Saddle - March 2009.

Lake Wilson
Tucked away at the source of the Routeburn is the lovely Lake Wilson. Access is from Harris Saddle round the side of Lake Harris. Instead we used our pack rafts to get to the head of the lake. We camped there before going up to Lake Wilson - Jan 2010.

Theatre Flat
Theatre Flat in the Rockburn Valley is well worth a visit. We went over Sugarloaf Pass to get into the Rockburn and tramped up the valley to the flats to camp under a large leaning rock. The next day we climbed the prominent point up valley - Pt 908 on the map - for panoramic views up and down the valley - Jan 2010.

Mount Alfred
This prominent landmark where the Dart and Rees rivers meet is well worth the climb. We went up Mt Alfred on a glorious day and had tremendous views in all directions - Jan 2010.

Rock Of Ages Bivvy
The Rock Of Ages Bivvy. is found in the Kitchner Valley of the East Matukituki river. We camped a night at Junction Flat before going up to the bivvy. The flats at the head of the Kitchener are now a small lake and make access to the bivvy a bit of a scramble - Jan 2010.
