Queen Charlotte Track

It was a beautiful place. Do lots of hill work before you go. There are plenty of steep climbs and steep declines.
This is a serious hike and not a 'walk in the park'. Go prepared.

a tough track especially in the hotter months, but really beautiful and special. Makes the stay at any of the lodges even more special if you have worked hard walking for 4-5 hours

Breathtakingly beautiful walk
Mar 2021 • Couples
We just did one day of the multi day track. We did the leg from Ship Cove to Furneaux Lodge, about 18km and worth every step. Hard but not too hard. Wear proper shoes though to make it easier and take plenty of water and snacks for the road. We’ve always wanted to do this walk and so glad we did. The one day was enough for us but if you are a tramper, do the whole
trip. They can even transport your
luggage to save you carrying it

Beautiful Walk Around The Coast
Feb 2021
We walked a section of track around Te Mahia, Kenepuru Sound. It was stunning ++ Off this track was Onahau Point Lookout. The walk was pretty tough- constantly ascending for a solid hour. But the bush, the walk, the views were awesome. The colours of the sounds were beautiful, varying shades of blue can be seen as you peep through the trees on the way up. The 360 degree view from the lookout was amazing. There are information sign boards up there so you can identify what you are looking at. I can only imagine the rest of the track is just as beautiful.

Just Fantastic
Jan 2021
We did the 17km walk from Ship Cove to Furneaux Lodge, which many say is the prettiest section. A water taxi drops you off at the start point, the first hour is pretty much uphill (but not massively steep) then the next hour downhill to Resolution Bay. Steady and undulating after that. Moderate fitness will get you there with an hour to spare at Furneaux before another water taxi picks you up. We are a middle aged couple, one of us with very limited fitness :) but the track is mostly wide and reasonably smooth - several groups had people much older than us doing it easily. Lots of breaks in the bush to reveal stunning views of the Sounds, this section of the QCT is well worth the effort (and the beers and hot chips, although a bit expensive) at the end made it even better. Also reasonably sheltered, the Sounds had a howling gale blowing, but we hardly felt any of it, and were also mostly sheltered from the occasional rain. A few toilet facilities along the way, but everything else is bring your own everything. Do it !

Fantastic views of the Sounds
Jan 2021 • Friends
Come for the views. The track itself is nice and easy, but it’s the views you will remember. You have to book the accommodations separately and that means a bit of digging around, but it’s worth it.
