About Banks Track
NZ’s original private walking track is an excellent eco-tourism experience, offering diverse wildlife, scenery and hospitality. Each accommodation reflects the character, history and individuality of the track families. Two self-guided options offer you the comfort of hot showers and small numbers, combined with the independence of the freedom walker. A Kiwi favourite.

An outstanding walking track. Spectacular and varied scenery. Accomodation significantly better than trampers huts and includes power and hot water. Abundant bird life. We did the 2 day hikers option but most were doing a three day option and having their bags transported to the next destination. Either way we’ll worth doing.

Absolutely loved my return to the Banks Peninsula Track. Headlands, valleys, penguins, dolphins, huts and houses. The perfect way to spend a few days with friends and family.

Very worth while hike. Magnificent views, with some steep climbs, but that's why I came. Kayaking at Flea Bay was a bonus. Quaint huts at Stoney Bay, with no electric light, but that's largely what made it quaint ! Pity that one farmer opted out, but the trek is still worthwhile.

Thanks for your review Chris. One small change along Banks Track after thirty years is not too bad. We were pleased to find a solution that meant walkers still get to experience Hinewai Reserve on the last day.
