Bush and Beyond

New Zealand's Kahurangi National Park, Guided Walk Specialists

About Bush and Beyond Guided Walks

Bush and Beyond is the original guiding company in Kahurangi National Park.

We are the only company who 'specialise' in Kahurangi, and we are very passionate about it! We have been guiding walkers throughout the park since 1993.

Bush and Beyond has built a sound reputation as an ecologically based operation, with a concern for the Park's natural values. See our conservation statement.

Our guides are local people who have wonderful knowledge of the flora and fauna, and extensive experience in Kahurangi. Most are members of the Friends of Flora conservation group.
