Kepler Track preparation

Hi. We're heading over to walk the Kepler Track in March and will be arriving in Dunedin from Brisbane. Can someone advise a good place in Dunedin to stock up on food etc. before we head across to Te Anau. Cheers.

Dunedin has many supermarkets plus some good outdoors stores.

I would wait and buy everything in Te Anau. You could try the supermarket or you can get specialised dehydrated meals and other hiking goodies at the hiking stores.

Te Anau has a brand new large supermarket called First Choice. This has large range of food to satisfy most if not all visitors to the area. I would stock up with food here.

Great info thanks, do you know what time the shops close, we do not arrive until 6:30PM and are hopeful of getting away early the next morning.

Closing times vary, but the supermarkets are open untill 8pm. Most shops will still be open at 6.30pm.

THe DOC headquarters opens at 8am, and closes at 5pm, so if you need to register with them before you leave you will have to do it within these hours
