It isn't actually my website - I've just been contributing a bunch of content.
In terms of expanding beyond Wellington, thanks for the offer but as far as I'm aware that isn't in the plan at the moment. However, who knows how things may change over time.

I do own the Tracks.org.nz website and I am keen to see if there is any real interest in me opening it up to cover more (or all) of New Zealand?
I have set up a structure where you can add and edit track info. But the content is best created by people who regularly use those tracks. That way you can keep the track info up to date and provide updates about the status of the track.
My initial idea for the website was to have just track info and current status (like open, closed due to slip, blocked because of tree but passible, etc). You can upload kml GPS files at present. This is initially so I can display the tracks on the google maps, but it would be better if you could get GPX (or whatever, I have an open source converter just waiting to plug in) files to upload to your device.
Anyway, I have lots of features that can be added but right now I'm keen to know if I should expand it?

Hey btw what GPS device do you use? I have an old garmin etrex and it looses signal alot.
I assume you are also logging elevation data? any chance of putting that into the kml? would be great to see some kennett bros style distance vs elevation graphs on tracks.org.nz
