Auckland Anniversary Weekend -Tawharanui Regional Park, North Auckland - kid & teen friendly

  When:  31 Jan 2021
  Time: 8.00 AM
  Location:1-7 The Strand, Takapuna (in front of Seven Hills Cafe) & Silverdale Park & Ride

We will do things a bit differently this long weekend, with a Sunday trip, although an additional trip maybe also be scheduled.

The stunning Tawharanui peninsula is a pest-free habitat, behind a predator proof fence, so treasured native species like Bellbirds, Whiteheads, Geckos, Takahe, Dotteralls, Kaka, Oyster Catchers, Blue Penguins and Kiwi and many more thrive. And if you’re lucky, you might spot Seals vying for a sunny rock or frolicking in the sea. Bird life should be very active, as they zoom around between abundant nectar sources.
We'll make sure that all groups complete the tracks that usually have the most bird life, including an extra loop for the distance party.

The park has multiple tracks of varying length, but times will be flexible depending on how many photos of birds you want to take and the distance party has a new track to play with.
All parties should have plenty of time go for a swim afterwards, so make sure you bring your swimming gear & small, light weight towel in your pack to enjoy the crystal clear water.

With low tide around 10.44am some groups may have the opportunity to go check out two sea caves!

Expect to walk 4.5 - 5 hours on uneven terrain.  This would be awesome tramp for kids

We will probably stop at Matakana on the way back for one of their famed ice creams.

If joining us for this event, as with all tramps, please ensure that all your gear, especially footwear is scrupulously clean before and cleaned after, especially as there are Kauri in the area.  Please bring a clean change of footwear for the return trip to get into good regular after tramping habits.  

    Only come out with us if you are well
    You are welcome to use your face mask and hand sanitiser
    There will be a COVID-19 QR code available for scanning

**  If you would like to be picked up Silverdale Park & Ride, please register on the website or contact the organiser.
