"Being guided on the Heaphy Track by Maryann and Bill of Bush and Beyond was a phenomenal experience for Peter and me and other members of our family. We were so well looked after, supported and fed. The trip was a highlight of our outdoor experiences - and we have had many."
Right Hon Helen Clark, Former Prime Minister of New Zealand
