Already a 'Great Walk', the Kepler Track is now also recognised as a 'Super Site' for education. As well as being a great environment for studying geology, glaciation and life in the beech forest, it's also rich in Māori and European history.

If your school's enquiry-based study is looking at any of these topics, this education resource will bring the learning alive. Many of the activities are relevant to other Southland settings, although the Kepler Track is an ideal environment for exciting and educational conservation learning.
