The Kepler Track is a true circuit and the start is within walking distance from Te Anau township. Most people take three or four days to do walk the track and make the most of Gucci facilities at Luxmore Hut, Iris Burn and Moturau hut.  

I wondered if there was some irony in the name as Johannes Kepler, a 17th Century German astronomer discovered that planets travel in an elliptical orbit. Turns out, it was James McKerrow - an early surveyor, who named the Kepler range in 1862, long before the track was built.
