HEAPHY TRACK HELP - Helping hikers’ and bikers’ relocate their vehicles for over 16 years. Heaphy Track Transport logistics made cost effective and simple!
Richard and Janet live locally to the tracks in Takaka, Golden Bay. They love all things Heaphy and Abel Tasman - and have a long and deep association with the tracks and the area.
Richard has been associated with the Heaphy and Abel Tasman Tracks for over a decade, having been a Park Ranger in the Kahurangi, Abel Tasman and Fiordland National Parks. He has been involved in the Heaphy Track Huts and Track upgrades of recent times. With his working background and having undertaken many relocations for the previous owners, Richard knows and loves the Heaphy and the logistics of working on it.
He drives the vehicles ensuring they are at the right place at the right time. You will very often meet him during your trip as he has found that running or biking the track is the most efficient way of getting home.
Janet has worked previously as a Ranger, undertaking Powelliphanta snail surveys on the Heaphy and around Golden Bay as well as working as a relief Hut Warden. Janet and Richard work together running Heaphy Track Help - and have taken their children through the Heaphy and Abel Tasman tracks numerous times.
Throughout the busy summer periods, and shoulder biking season, a dedicated team of local drivers help ensure the high demand of relocations are met.
