Join us for a very special trip to Rangitoto. Our annual club anniversary trip to this pohutukawa-forested volcanic island this year marks the club’s 50th anniversary and will repeat the first trip the club made all those years ago, back in 1968.

There are options to tramp through to McKenzie Bay, and around the back of the Island to Islington Bay and back to Rangitoto wharf (about 20 km). Another option is take in the views at the NSTC seat on the way up to the summit, and see the very cool lava caves. There’s also another track the club doesn’t usually do, which was very popular last year.

Bring your camera/phone for awesome photos, and a torch if you’d like to go to the lava caves and maybe swim wear/towel as the forecast looks good and it's usually about 4 degrees warmer on the island.

There will be prizes very kindly donated by Bivouac Albany for the most fun/best celebratory hat worn on the day for one male and one female tramper.

Ferry return times are 2.30pm (just goes into town) and 4pm for both Devonport and town.  

*  We have also negotiated discounted ferry crossing prices so we ask that everyone registers for the event on the website, so we know how many are going.  To claim the discount, register by Friday 9am.  Otherwise the standard fare will apply.
