Upcoming Tramps and Events

    • 2 Apr 2023
    • 8:45 AM
    • 214 Hibiscus Coast Highway, Orewa 0931 - Estuary Arts Carpark

    *  Please note, daylight saving ended 2am this morning, when clocks go back 1 hour. 

    The Whangaparaoa Coastal Walkway, Orewa to Fishermans Rock Reserve is one the club hasn't done for a long time & not like this & if the low tide is right at about 10.43am, 2.5 metre tide & wave swell, when we get to a couple of pinch points, we'll have a more fun and there will be wet feet, scrambling across a few big boulders to get to the next solid rock surface.   There are a couple of places where we need to jump down onto sand, or you can deep wade around the end of those bits of rock.  Or a bit of team work to get the group through these bits.  
    (If the swell is a bit high we'll head back up the less adventurous way).

    This is a tramp is for the sure footed, that can cope with slippery rock face for the duration of the tramp!!   There will be only one group for this tramp to keep everyone together.  The distance is about 14kms, so we need to move at good speed to beat the incoming tide. 

    Being a coastal tramp, the views are absolutely stunning the whole way, including near the start where we do hit a few steep cliff top tracks.  There are some incredible sea caves, lots of them along the way!  Some really cool rock formations for those interested in geology.  One very white sand beach in particular that most of the public will never see.   Definitely photo worthy tramping!

    Most suitable footwear for this tramp is super grippy trail runners & excellent socks.  Tramping boots and sea water don't mix. 
    (Please put some jandals and a boot bag in your pack for the return bus journey back to Orewa)

    It is a reasonable distance, so PLEASE ensure you have plenty of WATER with you at least 2 litres!!!   And plenty of sunblock or covered sleeves etc as we'll be in the open all day.

    Please ensure all your gear is clean, in case we pass any Kauri'd areas and as always ensure you thoroughly clean your gear afterwards.

    Duration: 2 days: Saturday 22nd to Sunday -23rd April’23

    Access: Waiorongomai Road end, southeast of Te Aroha township

    Grade: Medium

    Times:  Waiorongomai car park to Waitawheta Hut via Pylon Track, ~6 hrs

    Total Ascent ~2500m

    Accommodation: Waitawheta Hut, 26 bunks. (Club has prebooked 15 bunks) Limited tents sites outside Hut:


     Waitawheta Hut is a popular   overnight stop in the Kaimais. It   provides a feeling of seclusion   with views to the surrounding   forested hills.

    The Pylon Track is a trail carved by members of Auckland and Howick Tramping Club replacing the old Kauri Grove track.

    From the car park, the track briefly follows the Low Level Drive Track for two minutes before veering right along a track down to Waiorongomai River.  After a river crossing, the trail goes up the bank and past a derelict campsite, after which regular orange markers lead you on.

    Along the way some remains can be seen of the old power pylons, which took power from a hydro dam near Lake Karapiro to the Victoria Battery near Waikino.

    The track’s steadily climbs to reach a spur. Shortly after, it’s a steeper ascent to the range crest, at which there’s a clearing with several knolls offering grand views of Mt Te Aroha and the Hauraki plains.

    The track turns left along the Kaimai Ridgeway Track (formerly the North- South Track) and follows the narrow ridge offering more views west and some towards Waihi Beach and Coromandel.

    After reaching the Waipapa Track, head right along a well graded track gliding all the way down to Waitawheta Hut, a further two hours away.

     Sunday Day 2: Waitawheta Hut via High Level   Track with optional side trip to Mt Te Aroha for     those keen on an extra climb, then down Butlers   Incline to Waiorongomai Carpark: ~5 to 6 1/2 hrs   depending on whether you return via side trip to   Mt Te Aroha. 

     From the hut head straight back up Waipapa   Track and continue north past Pukekohatu and on   to Waiorongomai Saddle.

    For the Mt Te Aroha option take the Mt Te Aroha track. ~1 1/2hr return to the track junction. After returning to the junction head down the Te Aroha Link Track. Take the High Level track. ~2 ½ hrs to carpark. The High Level Track climbs past the historic Hardy’s hut before continuing along the track through the tunnel. You will come out at the Winding Gear site near the top of Butler’s incline. The track then descends down until you reach the car park. 

    Depart: Saturday 22nd April’23: 8am: Como Street, Takapuna

     N.B: Waitawheta Hut is a very popular and limited spaces are available.
