The Awatere Tussock Track is a 3 day unguided walk through the back country of Glen Orkney, the Harvey family farm in the Awatere Valley of Marlborough.
This exhilarating and engaging walk takes you through rolling tussock covered hills, along bush clad creeks and out into the rugged high country where the mountain views are spectacular.
Along the way you walk through reserves of protected , regenerating native plants and through grazing merino sheep. These sheep provide wool for the famous Icebreaker brand of clothing.
The welcoming and clean accommodation provides walkers with tramping luxuries such as a  comfortable bed, hot shower, flush toilet and fridge.
The  26km  track requires walkers to have a good level of fitness and agility and is not suitable for young children.
The farm showcases an integrated approach to farming and conservation practice and was the winner of The Marlborough Rural Environmental Awards  2005.
