Festival organisers, along with the Virtually on Track team want to encourage all New Zealanders to enjoy the beautiful outdoors, to appreciate the attractions of our region, and to keep fit and active. As part of ECHO 2016, there are some great walks and adventures taking place on the Virtually on Track gem sites.
