Welcome to walktheta.co.nz, a website dedicated to our adventures on New Zealand’s Te Araroa Trail, also known as the TA.
On March 17th 2020, myself and my 14 year old son Baxter became the latest people to thru-hike Te Araroa – New Zealand’s long pathway. The TA is a 3,000km journey from Cape Reinga at the top of the North Island, to Bluff at the bottom of the South Island.
The trail took us five months to complete, and now this site will become a visual guide to the walk with photos and videos of each stage, along with our own notes on each section, anecdotes and any advice we feel might be helpful for other TA walkers.
Thanks for visiting, and be sure to check back soon.
