|We had a wonderful 7-day tramp in South Westland. Our route was Paringa river - Otoko river to headwaters - Solution Range - Marks Flat - Saddle Creek - Clarke River - Upper Zeilian Creek - Moeraki river. Under blue skies we tramped long days and enjoyed mostly good travel through the bush, following deer trails in many places. The middle part of the tramp is in the Hooker-Landsborough wilderness area so there are no huts or tracks. It was beautiful, remote country and really worth the trip to visit Marks Flat.
