On a recent trip to New Zealand, I found the Mavora Lakes Track on 4X4 Explorer. It's a website where you can access hundreds of 4WD Trails, all across New Zealand including GPS map downloads. It's a really great resource!!!!

If you are considering a 4X4 Expedition to the South Island then you must check out It is simply the most comprehensive site of its type I have ever seen and well and truly gets my vote. I was impressed with how easy it to use and has everything from easy gravel tracks to real challenging terrain. Highly recommended.

The best 4x4 guide I've seen. It's a fantastic if you're looking to go off-road, regardless of your experience. The tracks are graded so if you want a challenge or a simple family getaway, you can find it.
