Good news, Goldies Bush track has been reopened, so we can enjoy this extremely scenic tramp!
There are major kauri die back cleaning stations at the start and end of the Goldies Bush Track, so please ensure that all your tramping gear is very clean and dirt free at the start and end.
Doing things a bit differently, the longer group will start at Bethell's of the Te Henga Walkway track start near the car bridge.
(Please note the footbridge at January 2019 was washed away, so will require wading through the shallow stream).
Making the most of the hills and incredible clifftop views, this group will walk the length of the Te Henga Walkway in reverse of normal and pop out on Constable Road, then connect with the Western end of the Goldies Bush Track and head through to enjoy the absolutely stunning Mokoroa Stream Track with all it's multiple pools and waterfalls!! Then head to the bus after.
The bus will be moved and the shorter group will start at the Goldies Bush Eastern entry & head through to the Western end of the track and backtrack and drop down into the Mokoroa Stream Track.
This is a fairly easy and incredibly stunning stream track, but you do need good balance, as you will be criss crossing the stream constantly.
Please ensure you have a change of footwear on the bus for afterwards and swimwear, as we have ordered good weather for the tramp, so we can make the most of every single swimming opportunity in the streams big pools. And you'll definitely want a camera to capture everything.
Also please ensure you have everything in drybags or waterproof bags.
* If there is any rain overnight, or on the morning, we may reassess the stream track and alter the tramp slightly. Irrespective time will be made to stop and check out the Mokoroa Lookout over the main waterfalls, as they're absolutely stunning!
