Motukaraka/Flat Island, Beachlands @ Glen Eden Kiwibank
Jul 19 @ 8:30 am

Grade: Easy

Time: 3-4 hours

Meet at Glen Eden or at 9.45am at corner Puriri Road and Hawke Crescent, Beachlands.

The island is accessible at low tide via a sandbar three hours either side of low tide.  On 19 July it is at 11.50am. The island can be walked around and climbed up onto. There is a shipwreck, a shag colony and sandstone cliffs.

New Zealand Herald:

“The island glitters less than 500m away, but a sense of magic belies its proximity. We feel thrust into the turquoise water of the gulf, adrift on a giant raft.”

Then we will go to the nearby Omana Regional park.

Non members must contact the Leader before trips to ensure suitability.
