Jim DuFresne, author of Lonely Planet’s Hiking & Tramping in New Zealand, has been heading downunder for more than 30 years, each trip a two to three-month adventure to update his guidebook. In this presentation, he shows why the home of the kiwi is such a mountainous paradise for backpackers. He covers the culture, the wildlife, New Zealand’s wonder hut system and the country’s most famous trails or tracks as they say downunder.
