Paul Hersey: tips for tackling the Great Walks

We have nine official Great Walks, one of which is actually a great river journey, that range in length from 32 to 82 kilometres long. Most are part of our national park network. Paul Hersey is a Dunedin writer and photographer who is big on walking, climbing, cycling and surfing… and with his equally active wife Shelley has written New Zealand’s Great Walks: The Complete Guide. It explains how to tackle the walks themselves but also looks at the flora and fauna and history of each as well as the conservation issues.
