Whether you're a novice tramper or an experienced tramper wishing to join all the benefits of being part of a well established club, we'll have something for everyone, with different group speeds to suit all and an experienced club member to lead your group.

There will be a few hills and with low tide around 11.42am, there will be the opportunity to walk around Pudding Island and crossing the Te Muri Estuary to new tracks at Te Muri Beach heading towards Wenderholm. Gorgeous sea views surrounding you, so bring your phone or camera.

Please ensure to bring plenty of food and water, swimwear (if keen for a Spring swim) and a day pack to carry things in, and as with all tramps a change of clothes and footwear for afterwards. 
As it's November the ground should be fairly dry so you should get away with running shoes or trail shoes, if you don't have tramping boots. 
(Please ensure all gear and footwear is absolutely clean to protect our precious Kauri and other large trees).  

Expect to walk for approximately 4.5 - 5 hours on mixed, possibly slippery surface on the foreshore.
