Timing: 3 hours
Meet in the main foyer of the Botanic Gardens at 1030. The walk will take in the Gardens and Totara Park. The café is conveniently located for some social time at the end.
We are thinking of organising a trip to take in the recently completed Twin Coast Cycle Trail. This would take the form
of 3 day-return trips which would be done as follows.
1: Opua – Kawakawa – Otiria return
2: Otiria – Kaikohe return
3: Kaikohe – Okaihau return
Accommodation: This would be at the Beachside Holiday Park near Paihia. They have Tourist Flats available at $100/night with 1 double bed and 2 singles. Tenting option is also available if you wish.
The trip would also be suitable for those who would like to go tramping.
We have obtained 2 cabins at the Waitangi Holiday Park. They hold a total of 10 people, so if you are interested, please contact us. There are already 5 reservations.
We will now hopefully include the Horeke end of the trail on Saturday or Sunday as it is very different. This will depend on the weather, of course.
Enjoy some Spring backpacking on Great Barrier Island. The Aotea track traverses spectacular landscapes and offers stunning views.
Huts $30 (bookable)
Shuttles $30-40 depending on numbers
