Hollyford Track Information:

The Hollyford Track follows the Hollyford River from the Hollyford Road End (18km from the Te Anau-Milford Sound Highway) to Martins Bay (allow four days walking one way). Access by aircraft and helicopter to Martins Bay is possible, and during the summer season prearranged jet boat transport is available across Lake McKerrow. The Hollyford Track is at low altitude and can be walked at any time of the year.

There are six DOC huts on the track available on the Hollyford Track for trampers. It is advisable to carry a portable cooker. The Pyke-Big Bay Route provides a round trip, but is not well defined in places, and should only be attempted by experienced and well equipped parties. It is essential to inquire about the conditions of the route with the Department of Conservation before starting your trip on the Hollyford Track.

Stay in Te Anau the night before you intend to travel, you will wake up fresh and ready to begin your walk into Fiordland National Park. Check out Te Anau Lakeview Holiday Park, where there is a large range of accommodation. Te Anau itself, is easily accessible by road and has a regular Tracknet bus service and has a full range of accommodation, shopping, hire services and car storage.

Booking during summer is essential - contact the Department of Conservation to reserve your hut space on the Track. Please book your hut tickets with the Department of Conservation before you organise your transport.
