He said there had been an increase in number of tourists entering the track this year because of the exposure by SBS television in April and the youth involving in the activities.

He said many developments along the Track also contribute in the increase of tourists.

The volunteers are currently on a cultural exchange program which started in 2001.

Koiari cultural group officially welcomed third lot of volunteers with traditional singsing and dance performances.
