Wildtrack - Mount Cook National Park

Television (Full Length Episode) – 1991

Wildtrack was a long-running series that infected a generation of kids who grew up in the 80s and early 90s with enthusiasm for all-things native’n’natural. This 1991 Taylormade episode (neon-lit as ‘Wild T’) explores the mountain life of Aoraki-Mt Cook: from Māori myth, to cheeky kea and solar-powered butterflies. Peter Hayden presents from the studio with a homegrown HAL: Archie the computer. Future actor/director Katie Wolfe is the young cub in field: glacier-skiing, hanging from a crevasse, meeting Mt Cook School’s eight pupils, and hugging vegetable sheep.

I like the scenery and it’s quiet, not like the cities where at nighttime you can’t get to sleep that well because of the cars zooming by. Here it’s really quite easy, all you hear is birds and the wind ... it’s really neat.
– Young Wildtracker Luke on why he loves living in the mountains
