The People

The K2K walk is the creation of Clare & Steve Dill and Shane & Jenny Hood.

The Food

The K2K Experience food is a highlight for many guests, espeically after a hard days walk! Delicious, home cooked two-course evening meals made with home-grown and locally sourced produce.

For lunches we supply you with loads of yummy stuff to fill your lunchbox to overflowing and keep you energised while you explore. Lunches include fillings to make a filled roll/wrap/sandwich, fresh fruit, juice box, muesli bar, and delicious home baking.

Evening meals may require a small input, such as warming food or cooking something on the barbeque. No surcharge applies for vegetarian meals. Please ensure that inform us at time of booking if you have any dietary requirements.

At each accommodation a basic trampers shop will be stocked with some sudry items, snack foods a nd beverages for purchase. Expect to pay prices similar to a country service station. As well as a range of cold drinks, items you can expect include chocolate, sweets, chips, toothbrushes, batteries, soap etc.

Cooking facilities for self caterers

If you choose to self-cater while enjoying the K2K then all you will need to bring is your food. Mataia Homestead has a full kitchen including oven, microwave and dishwasher.

Dill’s farm hut has a deluxe BBQ with a hot-plate, gas burners and a rotisserie. The cooking facilties at the Farm Cottage include a full oven, microwave, and BBQ. All accommodations have a range of standard cooking equipment and eating utensils available for your use.

Approximately five acres of developing garden features wide sweeping lawns, roses, old fashioned perennials, and a traditionally-styled knot herb garden. The original orchard has been restored using heritage fruit trees and there is a large vegetable garden.

The entire section is framed by mass native plantings and two large ponds. If you wish to peruse the gardens before your walk we do recommend an early start the next morning!
