North Shore Tramping Club
The tramp is moderate to a bit more difficult, so is not for those who are not fit.
Tents are required as it cannot be guaranteed that there are enough bunks in the huts. Hut tickets are required. You can purchase these unserviced hut tickets from Bivouac.
We will leave from the carpark at the end of Como Street at 7pm on Thursday 18th April and drive to Whakatane and stay the night. In the morning we will drive around to Ruatahuna to commence the tramp. Tramping this way is basically down hill as we follow the river to its mouth.
There are a number of river crossings along the way.
Friday evening we will stay at the Ngahiramai Hut, Saturday evening the Waikere Junction Hut and Sunday evening you will have the option of either the Ohura or Onepu Hut.
Monday we will walk out to be met by the bus at the Whakatane end.
