North Shore Tramping Club
Kariotahi Beach to Port Waikato
Online - Registration for financial members only, non-member please phone organiser:
Tramping along this spectacular beach and coastline exposed to the wilds of the Tasman Sea. You'll spot all sorts of things during our tramp, sea birds, wrecked car bodies, interesting geological sandstone cliffs, a small waterfall with the soothing sounds of the waves crashing onto the sand and maybe some lounging seals and much more. We'll head south to the Port Waikato entrance and return, approximately 20kms, 5 hours approximately.
Running shoes or Trail running shoes would be most suitable for this tramp.
Don't forget your camera, camera phone and swimming gear and a light weight towel (not a heavy full sized bath towel) if you are game for a June swim.
