    Tramping: A New Zealand history tells the story of the development of tramping in New Zealand, tracing its origins to the way Maori and early Europeans engaged with the sometimes forbidding New Zealand mountains and bush. It describes how state-sponsored tracks and huts were developed for tourism in the late nineteenth century, most notably on the Milford Track, described as ‘the finest walk in the world’.

    Kawakawa Bay is on the northern shores of Lake Taupo 5kms west of Kinloch in an exceedingly beautiful location far removed from the bustle of everyday life. At the eastern end of the Bay stand a number or rhyolite cliffs overlooking native bush and the lake. Currently there are over 150 climbs, a mix of trad and bolted routes many of which are multi-pitch. With a high number of easy and moderate well protected trad climbs, Kawakawa Bay is a great place to learn traditional climbing.
