The Tableland Circuit is a must do experience in Kahurangi National Park. The circuit creates a loop beginning from Graham Valley Road that takes you past a handful of Department of Conservation rock shelters and some brilliant huts 🙂
The Kahurangi National Park is New Zealands second largest covering over 4500 square km’s and has some of the most diverse flora and fauna of our parks. You’ll see our native snails, whio, weka, robins, kea and more!!
The circuit takes 1-3 days and is a great circuit for those just starting out tramping, or for when you feel like an easy-ish weekend in our backcountry. You can get the kids into the Flora Valley easy, and further dependant on ability. You can even cycle in this area through to the lower junction and continue off the circuit from there to the cobb dam area. It’s an easy cycle to lower junction but is a more difficult grade from there.
There’s also a tonne of history in the area, with the Bishops pool, old water races, and more!
