You last day of hiking takes you from Punga Cove, through open farmland and beech forest to Anakiwa, from where you take the water taxi back to Picton
Ascend to the ridgeline once again from Punga Cove and enjoy viewing the turquoise waters of Kenepuru Sound and walking through open farmland. Upon reaching a stand of Manuka trees this is a good place to stop for a break, before continuing onto Te Mahia Bay Saddle. About 2 hours from the end of the track you may spot milky blue patches in the water which are likely moon jelly fish! Here there is a gradual descent through beech forest and you can also spot the small settlements of Ngakuta and Momorangi.
Davies Bay is a great place for a final swim in its sheltered bay. Arrrive in Anikawa jetty where you return by the 3.30pm water taxi, reaching Picton at 4:30pm. Spend your last night in this picturesque town and explore its many cafes and restaurants for dinner and try the local Marlborough Sounds wine as a fitting farewell to a wonderful “tramp”.
These maps are designed to be used to help you follow the track. However you can also follow the way markers along the way.
You may also use the QR code to download the GPS tracks onto the Macs Adventure Smartphone App (please see your information pack for more details on how to use the app).
Using these elements alongside each other should go a long way to ensure you have a safe, enjoyable and problem free day.
