Transport to Tuatapere

The Southern Scenic Route is a fantastic journey into the remote Deep South of New Zealand. Approximate travelling times to Tuatapere from Queenstown (2hrs), from Te Anau (1hr 20min) and from Invercargill (1hr).

Transport From Queenstown or Te Anau

Bus Service

The Humpridge Shuttle collects and drops off in both Te Anau and Invercargill (see the schedule below). Connecting legs to and from Queenstown are booked through us, but carried by Tracknet. This helps us ensure that all the dots are connected.

If travelling from Queenstown or Te Anau, then passengers will need to travel down to Tuatapere the day before their designated walk starting date. One can return to Te Anau or Queenstown the same day as finishing, as long as walkers have come off the Track by 2.30pm, or alternatively, the following day at the scheduled times.

Bookings are essential, as the shuttle does not run if there are no bookings for a particular day
