Our Partners

Te Araroa Trust is honoured to care for the trail, one of the most beautiful and highly regarded long-distance walks in the world. We are especially grateful to our sponsors, partners and supporters who are helping us on our journey to become a regenerative trail.  Partner support enables us to:
  • develop alternative routes to minimise road walking sections.
  • improve the information we provide to walkers and other trail stakeholders.
  • develop the infrastructure walkers need.
Our partners are critical to improving the trail experience, leaving it better than it was before, and ensuring the future of Te Araroa.
