Paint The Lodge - Work Parties

John Lyttle /

This Summer's work plan is to repaint the exterior of the lodge and do some internal touch ups.

Accommodation for each weekend will be free for helpers and transport may be available from various centres.  We need all levels of help from painters to cleaner-uppers to cooks.

Work parties will only proceed if there is a reasonable weather forecast, so please register your interest as soon as you are able and we will contact you directly with updates.

Most equipment will be provided by the club but do bring the usual lodge requirements as well as painting clothes, electric sanders, power leads and your favourite paint brush.

Contact John Lyttle (Lodge Manager) to register or if you have any questions.

  • 15-17 December 2023
  • 26-28 January 2024
  • 16-18 February 2024

Cheryl D & Marilyn H Barlow hut

As Barlow hut is a river route this trip will be totally dependent on river levels.  If it is not possible to do this trip our backup trip will be Sunrise hut. 

At this time Wakarara road is still closed, access is via Makaroro road which is next left past Wakarara road. Travel time from  Dannevirke to the start of either track is 1 hour  so we intend that you should leave Palmerston North no later than 7.30am.
The Makaroro river  is a wide river bed with no big rocks but does require several river crossings.If you would like to join us please message Marilyn on +6421374882 or Cheryl on 0277158438
