Summer in the valley

Nestled between the mountains of the Main Divide and Lake Wakatipu, the Greenstone Valley is verdant home to a wealth of wildlife and plants. It is also something of a spiritual home for former high country shepherd Tony Maturin, who has worked as a part-time Department of Conservation hut warden in the valley for the last seven summers, assisting trampers on the Greenstone Track, recording the natural history of the area and reflecting on the beauty of it all.
