Routeburn Track location map

Travel to and from the Routeburn Track requires road transport at both ends of the track.

One track end is at the Routeburn Shelter (near Glenorchy and 68 km from Queenstown). The other is at The Divide Shelter (on the Milford Road, 85 km from Te Anau).

It is possible to make a circuit by combining the Routeburn Track with either the Caples or Greenstone Tracks.
