Day 153: Arrival at Cape Reinga

Sat 24 June 2017

  • Km today: 15
  • Total Km: 3103

Today I reached Cape Reinga lighthouse and the northern most end of the Te Araroa trail at the much photographed AA sign. This marked the end of my 5 month journey of New Zealand by foot.

There is so much to reflect on and to write, which will be coming soon… But first some rest. Oh and look for a job I suppose.

Massive thanks to every one who has supported me along the way and been so generous with donations to St John – donations can still be made via my blog.


The pre arrival crew walk the final kms with me (Ben, Adam, Gillian, Tash, Kirsten)


A fantastic St John welcome (Shane, Louise, Robin)


It’s a wrap
