* Please note Red Boats have changed their schedule at 18th May, so Albany is the replacement tramp for Motuihe Tree Planting.
Ever thought there's not much bush walking around Albany?! Join us to find out how many bush and forest tracks there are! You'll be surprised!
This tramp today is a 20km tramp, that maybe slippery or uneven and does have some hill climbs and will take approximately 5 hours at a good walking speed. (There will be options to shorten tramp if absolutely needed, but the aim is to have everyone complete the tramp).
We'll spend most of our day walking beside very pretty streams and under the cover of mighty, towering Kahikatea, Tanekaha, Totara, Rimu, Kowhai and more. With gentle light filtering through the canopy and native orchids, mosses making for magical photos along the stream and the intricate network of tracks.
For those that did one of the new tracks with us last year, there are a few changes and more tracks completed again for 2021. The aim of the tramp being, let's see if everyone walks over a track they've not done before!
Trail runners, grippy running shoes or boots will be fine.
Please ensure you have plenty food & water, as we won't be near cafes except for the start.
