The Heaphy Track is located in the Kahurangi National Park, in the north west of the South Island and is three quarters of an hour by car from the Collingwood Park Motel. This walking track takes 3-5 days and hut accommodation must be booked. Two new huts have recently been completed.
From May until the end of September the track is open to mountain bikers and Collingwood Park is an ideal place to stay at the beginning or end of your trip. There are several options for transport between the track and your vehicle. Adventure Flights Golden Bay have begun operating an aircraft which will transport 5 cyclists, luggage and complete bikes to assist your trip.
This track is inhabited by numerous native birds and includes native beech forest, exposed alpine tussock and a walk through nikau palms with the wild sea of the West Coast beside you.
