Was a great hike, and very doable for a day trip on Stewart Island. It took me 7.5 hours to finish. Some beautiful views and a variated walk through forest, beach and coast line. Definately worth the effort.

Saw a giant kiwi

This was my first Great Walk and such a eye opener to what is out there. I was seven when completed it and although challenging, it was and fun experience.
