Whirinaki Forest
$60 fare
Lynne Flood

This Easter we will return to the beautiful Whirinaki Forest south of Rotorua to see some of the biggest trees in the land.
This trip would not suit beginners.

It is expected that we will travel down to Whirinaki on Thursday for a Friday start. At this stage we plan to go to Central Whirinaki Hut on Easter Friday. Saturday to Upper Whirinaki Hut via caves. Sunday to Magamate Hut or if good weather we will camp down on the flats below Mangamate, then out on Monday in time for a soak at Kerosene Creek (much nicer than it sounds!). We will use a shuttle service to the track start. Travel time is 5 hours from West Auckland. Cut off date is Friday 22 March. Self catering.
