Kōrero: Grasslands



These trampers are following a track near Borland Saddle in Fiordland National Park. Much of the South Island high country above the treeline is dominated by tussock grasslands. The higher rainfall areas are mostly formally protected as conservation land, in this case a national park. Trampers are familiar with these alpine tussock lands, which they call the ‘tops’.
