As the a number of the clubbies are away with Big Yellow (our club bus), let's have some fun on Auckland tracks at the north Waitakere.  Whilst the Te Henga Walkway is still indefinitely closed, we'll make the most of the beach and explore a couple of awesome caves before low tide around 11.13am!  And then we head over to Lake Wainamu and explore the impressive, picturesque inland sand dune.

There should be opportunity to spot different native birds along the way.

You'll need reasonable fitness as we will be walking mostly on sand and there are some short sharp climbs over approximately 4 hours. 

As the forecast is sunny so those that are keen might like to partake of a swim in the lake.  If you are keen, bring a small, lightweight tramping towel, sarong to change in and a change of undies so you're not tramping back to the start wet.  

As always please ensure that all your gear is very clean, footwear, bag, walking pole etc. 
Please also bring a change of footwear for the trip home and a bag to put your dirty footwear into and please clean all your gear thoroughly when you get home as good standard practice.
