This is the shortest walk of all the days but still very rewarding. Wake up late or simply wander around the beautiful Furneaux Lodge precinct and enjoy the sound of the forest. At the back of the lodge there are numerous tracks to explore, complete with a plethora of Rimu trees, waterfalls, and glow worms at night. The track today hugs the water, making its way around Endeavour Inlet with views over the inlet virtually the whole way. There’s also native forest, lush coastal vegetation, and Ponga tree ferns set into deep gullies. More importantly, tonight’s accommodation is just as good as last night’s.
