 Wednesday 2 May 2018

Joy made a trip to South America last year with this talk mainly on her time in Peru and Brazil.

Waingaro Forks Hut

Kahurangi National Park
  Saturday - Sunday 5-6 May 2018 


The Cobb Road is closed, so the trip for the weekend of 5-6 May has been changed. 

Instead we’ll leave Richmond early on the morning of Saturday 5 May to drive over the Takaka Hill, and then walk the Killdevil Track to camp by Waingaro Forks Hut (4 bunks), and return the same way on Sunday 6 May.

Moderate – 7 hours each way. 

If enough people prefer to have a three day trip, some could leave on Friday 4 May and have a side trip to Lake Stanley on Saturday, and all return on Sunday

Contact David S. 544 1573

Transport cost $19
