Be sure you know everything you need to know before joining us on this trip - trip grading, the gear you need, departure point, emergencies, etc. See the Day Walk info page.

Payment: Please pay in cash on the day if you can – it saves our Club volunteers work. If you forget, don’t worry, we’ll give you the details for an electronic payment.

Return times: Normally 5-7pm, but 6-8pm for trips advertised as “late finish”. However, any trip can be delayed through injury, traffic etc. It’s best not to plan anything for the early evening.

We regret that we have had to cancel this trip as the roads to Karekare have been damaged in the recent weather events so access will probably not be possible. There have also been slips reported on some of the tramping tracks.


Starting from beach car park at Karekare, over the dunes to the beach – Karekare Point – Tunnel Point – Pararaha Valley – Muir and Gibbon Tracks then down to Whatipu. Return to Karekare along the beach. Depending on wind direction the trip could be done in reverse.

Approx 20 – 22km. A longish tramp, but with the upgraded tracks 6-7 hours.
