Register for your walks early.
Book accommodation early.
If you are coming over on the ferry, we suggest using the toilet on the boat before you arrive it could be your last opportunity for a while!
Bring water, snacks, sunscreen and a hat.
Bring cash for bus fares if the start of your walk is anywhere other than at Matiatia ferry terminal. There is a cash dispenser at Matiatia but to avoid missing your bus through queueing it is recommended that you have cash with you. Vineyards, restaurants and cafes all take Eftpos and credit cards.
