For an active day out, walk the most varied section of the Abel Tasman Coast Track from Medlands to Anchorage with return boat transfers from Kaiteriteri. This walk features the impressive Falls River Swing Bridge (15–20 metres high, depending on the tide height), Torrent Bay inlet, and Anchorage Beach.
Distance 10.6km (6.5 miles). Max. elevation 150m (500ft)
For the 2023-24 summer season, the Torrent River bridge is under repair. Therefore the high tide track around the Torrent Bay Inlet involves fording the river at the marked location on the track.
There are some slippery rocks so take care. It is advised to bring water shoes if you don't want to wet your hiking shoes. On very high tides, the river crossing can be above knee height. We can alter your itinerary to avoid a deep river crossing.
