The great Kepler Track starts in Te Anau
You can either walk to the start of the Kepler Great Walk track or drive there. If you are taking car, there is a large car park just by the control gates. Or you could try Tracknet who run services to the start of the track. Once you’re at the start of the walk, you can go in two directions, south or north. This is because the Kepler is a circular walk starting and ending at the control gates.
