Banks Track


There are no fixed daily itineraries apart from the night’s destination, you make your own way, in your own time. The three-day classic walk gives you the time to hike the side tracks (all listed in your guide booklet), watch the birds and wildlife, swim, sunbathe, read, play games, beach-comb, or take more photos. You have plenty of time to explore more and relax in the beauty that is Banks Peninsula. The leisurely pace of this walk makes it an option open to all age groups. It is also excellent as a ‘first tramp’ for the novice walker, or as a first/last tramp for the visitor flying to or from Christchurch airport.


Why Walk With Us? To enjoy a stunning, spectacular, diverse and enriching experience, a feast for the senses. Banks Track takes you through forest, over hill and along coast. You can see a wide variety of flora and fauna including penguin, dolphin, titi, bellbird, tui, seal, fantail, tomtit, morepork, falcon and kereru before you spend your evening either stargazing in our dark skies or enjoying the warmth and camaraderie of a cosy fire. The accommodation is original, comfortable, varied, quirky, “rustic luxury” and it is never crowded as there are only 16 walkers on the track at any given time.
