Everything about the trip was first rate - the walk itself is stunning and not too hard, the scenery is amazing. The facilities provided by Wilsons were just wonderful - particularly the replica homestead at Araroa. The food was excellent and there was a surprisingly great list of local wines and craft beers. We took the guided walk and our guide, Phil, was knowledgeable and a great walking companion. Would recommend this trip without any hesitation.

It was a first time for me, but not my wife who had done the entire track in the past. It is an easy track - sandy and wide and well marked. It isn't going to challenge experienced trampers, it is more relaxed and has great beaches and bays along the way for swimming. In summer it is hot, but pleasantly cool on the track off the beach. Unsurprisingly, it is very popular and the camp sites and huts are well used.

Although not new to multi-day tramping, this was our first great walk experience, and we loved it. The tracks were wide, the huts were all we needed and the views were some of the best we've seen in our international travels. We started from the Marahau end, travelling to Anchorage on the first day, Bark Bay on the second, Awaroa Inlet on the third day, and up to Whariwharangi Hut on the fourth day, before travelling back to the water taxi at Totaranui on our 5th day. My hints: - When travelling from Totaranui to Whariwharangi (or back again), don't go over Gibbs Track - it is shorter but boring. The views aren't great and it isn't worth it. The coastal track is nicer and prettier - a better option by far. - The four huts and Totaranui are the only places with filtered water, so fill up your drink bottles at each of these places. - There are lots of toilets (with toilet paper) all along the track, so you don't need to carry a shovel or toilet paper with you. - If you want to get a bottom bunk, get to the huts early. - The side tracks are worth taking for the views and placed to rest. Some are really steep (such as down to sandfly bay), so it can be worth leaving your pack at the top). - Download the Abel Tasman App - lots of information and updates, as well as a map you can access offline - The huts don't have electricity, so take a power pack for your phones - there is hotspot wifi at all huts (except Whariwharangi, where you can get good coverage on the beach).

Boat companies are taking passengers to various locations on the coast. Way back to visitor center is fantastic - it goes through national park crossing creeks, going around coast with several beautiful viewpoints. During low water you can cross torrent bay on sandy. Perfect way how to spend a day. I took a hike from Back bay, it's around 20 kilometers.

I caught the boat in to Torrent Bay and then crossed on the low-tide 'track' towards Anchorage, before climbing up to the main track back to Marahau. This was the only part that was steady climbing as most of the track was thereafter undulating but steady. Lots of variety in bird life and foliage though. Beautiful and not crowded in the middle of winter. :)
