Simon and Lynda Harvey have three covenants protecting around 23 ha of native forest, scrub and sedgeland areas on their high country farm in Marlborough.
From mid November and mid May it is possible to walk their Awatere Tussock track - a two or three day unguided walk that takes you through their farm’s tussock covered hills, bush clad creeks and rugged back country terrain with spectacular mountain views and breathtaking night skies. You will pass the covenants and walk through paddocks of grazing merino sheep growing wool for the famous Icebreaker brand of clothing. A good level of fitness and agility is required to do the walk.
More information about the walking track, bookings and fees can be found on their website www.tussocktrack.co.nz
