This will be the first time the club has had the chance to my knowledge, of being able to tramp over at Motuihe, more new ground.  We usually go over to help with planting, and in a few months time, we'll be back to help with planting.  So this time we'll get out and explore as much of the island as we have time for!!!  

 

Bring your camera/phone as the sea views all around you on this little island are gorgeous and if we're lucky we might be able to find the sunbathing Tuatara's!   Hopefully we may have some time for a swim too!  

Please bring plenty of drinking water due to the very high temperatures we're currently experiencing.
