Where to start?

Anawkia or Ship Cove - Which Way is Best?

Although the Queen Charlotte Track can be walked from either end, the recommended start is at Ship Cove.
View Maps

  • Ship Cove is an Historic Reserve. There is no accommodation and camping is not permitted. No public telephone is available and cell phone coverage is extremely poor, therefore walkers requiring transport from Ship Cove will need to have definite and confirmed boat transport arrangements.

  • Freedom walkers starting from the Anakiwa end of the Queen Charlotte Track will usually have to carry their own packs. Boat operators who provide regular pack transfers normally provide this service for passengers walking from the Ship Cove end of the Track only. Alternative arrangements are usually available for larger groups.
