This outstanding 250 km hike heads inland from Portland and makes its way through dense forests and across languid rivers to Nelson, before looping back to Portland along the beautifully rough limestone coast. Walkers should register the details of their trip with either the Portland Visitor Information Centre or the local police; they must also sign out once they’ve finished the walk. Note: carry some water as supplies at the campsites aren’t always reliable.
