Catching the 8.08 train to the city, then the 9.15 ferry to Rangitoto. If anyone prefers to meet at the ferry building let Colin know in advance. For those who have done Rangitoto before you will know it provides a bit of everything. Good up-hill walking for those who want it, easy costal walking for those who want to have an easier day.
NB: please note the different meeting time & place for meeting.
