The Tora Coastal Walk, (http://www.toracoastalwalk.co.nz/) along with several others of a similar type throughout New Zealand, was established by farmers as a means of supplementing their farm incomes. These walks have over-night accommodation and food provided. On the Tora Walk trampers’ personal belongings are transported from one stop-over to the next by the rural mail delivery man, so we only need to carry light day-packs on the track. I did this walk with six naturist friends, naked, as nature intended. What a marvellous experience: we enjoyed beautiful weather, marvellous scenery, without heavy packs and with accommodation and food provided. On the evening of our arrival at Whakapata Cottage the farmer’s wife welcomed us with a meal fit for royalty.
