The first tramp for 2024 is an overnighter (Thurs 8 Feb – Fri 9 Feb 2024)  to Tongariro National Park. We will be visiting some historic and geologically unique places.

Overnight (Thursday) accommodation will be at Mangahuia Campsite (DoC) or Whakapapa Village.  Please book your own accommodation in advance, it is a busy time of year. The holiday park at Whakapapa offers a range of accommodation options. NB the van will not be travelling to the lodge at Iwikau.

Thursday will be a series of short walks exploring some historical sites up the Ohakune Mountain road and a unique ephemeral ‘water fountain’.

On Friday we will walk into to a unique area of geological significance (GNS link) and view the black back gull colony, if they are still in residence. The trip will be mostly offtrack through open country and rough underfoot. There’s no dense vegetation to push through and no long steep climbs, just shorter ones.
