    Once out of the tunnel there are descents past more tunnels.

    There are remains to look at of the stations for the aerial ropeways that crossed high over the valley to the Stamper batteries used to extract the gold from the quart ore on the other side of the river. As you descend further the track makes use of the old horse drawn tramways.

    Hut baggers won’t want to miss this one!

    You may not find Champion Hut marked on any map of Neavesville in the Hikuai area, so we will have to use good navigational skills to locate and bag this old Kauri slab hut, in an area that has been extensively mined and milled by pioneers in times long ago.

    We will start at the end of Puriri valley road and follow a four-wheel drive track up to a water supply intake filter, then continue along the Apakura stream crossing it several times and navigating ourselves up to where the hut might be? From there if time permits, we will continue up Pakirarahi 787 meters for views of the Hauraki plans.

    Expect a 500 meter or more elevation gain, wet feet and possibly more, mud, bush bashing, scrambling, arguing and lots of fun!!!

    You will need a good level of fitness.

    Time:  Depart Takapuna 8am 

    Cost:  $25.00 members, $30 non members.

    Come and support our Clubs Kaimai Track Clearing Party with this FREE Weekend.

    As part of our Clubs 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 taken 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.

    The severe weather during 2023 left an area of windfall damage covering about 500 metres near the saddle, on the Wairere Falls side of the track .

    We will travel down and sleep in the bus on the Friday night, parking up at the Wairere Falls Carpark located at the end of Goodwin Road, off  Te Aroha-Okauia Rd.

    On Saturday we tramp up the Wairere Falls track to an idyllic camp site ~1 1/2 hours from the top of Wairere Falls, just below the saddle where we will start track clearing.  

    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. 

    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.
