Accommodation at Miranda Holiday Park: I will book 1 or 2 Tourist Lodges and need definite numbers for the Lodges and payment before 15 July. Each lodge has one room with three bunks and a separate room with a double bed. Cost varies depending on the number of people. If the Lodge is full (ie 5 people) it would be $55 each
If you don’t want to share, you could book a lodge for just two people and that is $90 each. There are also studio apartments and chalets which you can book yourselves. Just let me know what you are doing.
Proceed to Miranda on Saturday afternoon/evening and spend the Saturday night at the Tourist Lodge at Miranda and enjoy a hot swim. On Sunday we will go to Waharau on the eastern side of the Hunuas and start the tramp by 8.30am. This is an 8 hour loop tramp so reasonable speed and fitness required. The first three or more hours are steeply uphill on an old vehicle track to a lookout and then to a ridge. Dry underfoot and with beautiful views. We then follow the ridge on a tramping track to a hut and lookout with views to the Sky Tower. The trip down is through beautiful bush, past camp sites and a shelter and a stream crossing.
