Hump Ridge walk has been named as a new Great Walk.

The new walk won a special contest to select New Zealand’s next Great Walk.

The 61km track in Southland will now undergo a series of upgrades, transforming it from a two-night to a three-night experience.

It will officially become a Great Walk in 2022.

The Department of Conservation (DOC) began the hunt for the next Great Walk in 2017.

Three finalists were singled out – Te Paki Coastal Track, Hump Ridge Track and Queen Charlotte Track.
