Milford Track fully open for first time since February

From Morning Report, 8:53 am on 30 November 2020

For the first time since devastating floods hit Fiordland in February, trampers can now walk the Milford Track end-to-end.

Floods damaged several sections of the Great Walk track, with repairs to the Clinton Valley section finished during winter.

The damage was more severe between Dumpling Hut and Sandfly Point in the Arthur Valley and repairs took a bit longer.
