Kaimai Track Clearing 

Start: 8.00am: Saturday, 19th November’22

Depart: Cnr Auburn and Como Streets, Takapuna

Return: Sunday, 20th November’22              

Come and support our Club's Kaimai Track Clearing Party with this FREE Weekend.

As part of our Club's commitment to support the Kaimai Ridgeway Trust’s initiative to maintain tracks in the Kaimai’s we have undertaken to clear the track from Aongatete Junction to Wairere Falls.

  • Includes a tramp in pristine river valley and forest   
  • Great comradeship                   
  • Only work as hard as you feel able
  • No pressure to finish any length of the track                                            
  • Full complement of quality tools provided
  • Good water supply
  • Safety taking seriously                                                                            

Several previous trips undertaken by members have enabled most of the track to be cleared between the top of the Wairere Falls to the junction of the North South Track near Aongatete.

It is some 5 years ago we started the project with the area above Wairere Falls now in need of some further maintenance.

We will be camping out in an idyllic open area close to water, not far from the top of the Wairere Falls.

Are you able to help on this trip?  The work is not difficult.  All you need is some good garden gloves.  The Club has a full complement of tools to tackle the job. 

It will be an ideal time because the rain has softened the ground, and enables grasses and plants to be pulled out with ease.
As there are no huts, tents are required (available for loan from the Club if required for current financial NSTC members).  There is an abundance of clean water available in nearby streams.

We will travel down to the Wairere Falls carpark (located at the end of Goodwin Road off Te Aroha-Okauia Road) on the Saturday morning  and return Sunday afternoon.

Depart:  8.00am Sat 19th November’22.
