From the main wharf, the track leads through forest to the centre of the island. It's an alternative to the tar sealed road.
The Bullock Track is a gravel track and steeper in places than the main road. It exits at the circuit track.
You can get to Matiu/Somes Island on the scheduled ferry service which runs between Queens Wharf and Days Bay seven days a week, and from Seatoun on Saturday and Sundays.
We highly recommend groups of more than 20 people, and those staying overnight, book a place on the ferry. In severe weather conditions one or both ferries can be cancelled.
If you plan to arrive by private boat or kayak, find out about the rules for landing on the island.
This track was one of the original European tracks on the Island, hewn out by WWI internees.
