New Zealand’s 3000km Te Araroa walking trail is becoming a major drawcard for hikers, but is it sustainable?https://www.noted.co.nz/planet/planet-p ... -of-hikers

could be a dead duck next summer... no sign of a herd immunity happening in NZ any time soon, only 1300 infected, they wont be letting people in without going through lengthy quarantine till they can get the population immunised

The NZ PM and FM has floated relaxing travel restrictions for Aussies going to NZ at some stage - whether this happens or not is another thing:https://www.abc.net.au/news/2020-04-16/ ... n/12153752
This means at least some people may be able to get into NZ without the lengthy quarantine but there will be other problems like a lack of track maintenance (which is probably not a priority during a pandemic) or potential for an outbreak which causes restrictions to be ramped up again leaving you on the wrong side of a lengthy quarantine when you want to return.

inter regional travel discouraged at Level 2. and because of social distancing rules , public transport could be a problem.
DOC wont' open huts until it gets to level 1, in the wilderness mag.
track maintenance maybe level 2, but could still be level 1
