Glenorchy is the jumping off point for a number of tracks. Purchase hut tickets from the Department of Conveservation (DOC) office in town. On the Great Walks, prices range from NZ$10-45, and the other tracks' huts range from NZ$5-35. Camping is only allowed in designated areas and often campers are not permitted to use the hut facilities. Be sure to register with the DOC before leaving on any tramp as this will be your best method of someone noticing that you haven't returned and starting a search.
