Upcoming Events

[See Programme for more details.]
17 February
Lake Rotoiti Circuit Easy

Summertime and the swimming is easy!   Easy walking on a very good track and mostly flat, although quite long. Many potential places to swim. Plan to go around the lakeside track anticlockwise with the possibility of a car shuttle to the track start off the Mt Robert Road. There is pretty beech forest to Coldwater Hut. Then wade the Travers and on to Lakehead Hut. Back to Kerr Bay through the more sparse forest on the Eastern side.

 

24 February
Kayaking Pepin Island Grade TBD

One for the arms!! We can have a short stroll on Maori Pa Spit though. High tide early afternoon, so plan on going clockwise, around 4 hours depending on stops/ swims etc.  Should be able to access the caves on the western side en route. Source your own gear if you can, otherwise come talk with me. The tides are slightly better for Saturday, so keep this option open, will go on the best of the two days with low winds ect.

2 March

Starlight is the exit cave from the Harwoods Hole entrance, deep down in Gorge Creek. It's a beautiful cavern. Bring torches, polypro/wetsuit and wet footwear to use if you want to amble around in the cavern. A helmet is also advisable. It's a steep drop into the basin and climb out, so must be ok and not freaked by loose rock (and not mind a grunty workout). All in the name of fun. A solid day's walk.

Because of the steep loose descent, numbers will be limited

4 March
