Camping NZ NEW

Welcome to New Zealand's most comprehensive database of freely available camping information. This is the only travel map of its kind in NZ.


A steep descent off little Mt Peel may be made by experienced trampers or climbers taking the main ridge behind the shelter. Keep strictly to the ridge until a track sign directs left, down a tussock-covered spur to the bush line. Then zigzags steeply until emerging into Emily Stream just above Emily Falls.
