We still have one space available for this weekend tramp. Please register via the website or contact details as listed below.
Come and enjoy a new area for tramping. Mataia is on the Kaipara Harbour, one hour north of Auckland.
The Mataia Farm has been in the Gardner family since it was purchased from the local Maori chief Hori Te Totara in 1868. The Mataia Restoration Project was started in 2000 and involved fencing off and retiring 400 hectares of the farm. Intensive predator control, as well as extensive replanting, has seen the flora and fauna thrive. North Island brown kiwi were released on the farm in 2012.
The cottage and walks are on a large (1,600 hectare) private farm. The self-contained cottage has a full kitchen, living room and four bedrooms, plus an extensive view of the Kaipara Harbour.
The weekend trip is limited to 10 trampers and transport will be by private car. We will be joined by Club trampers for their Sunday tramp.
