About this Event

Kiwis have #gottogetout!

The Got To Get Out Taranaki Adventurers invites you to come hiking in the beautiful Egmont National Park, following Mangorei and Pouakai Track to Pouakai hut for a day trip!

This FREE intermediate grade hike is arranged by our volunteer community leaders with the sole purpose of getting the community outdoors, active, and connected!

NOTE: This trip is currently capped at 15 people for now - so please make sure you redeem a ticket upon arrival.

Details as follow:

8:30am - Meet outside Brooklands Kindergarten Upjohn St, New Plymouth

8:45am - Carpool to Mangorei Track Carpark

9:30am - Begin Hike

3pm - Back at Mangorei Track Carpark

We will walk through the subalpine forest of the Pouakai range the track has been well maintained and is approximately 5.5km to the hut all uphill. Closer to the hut the landscape changes to alpine tussocks and low shrubs this can be quite exposed on a windy day. Stop at hut for a break, before deciding to push onto the Tarns, this is set amongst alpine swamp lands and on a clear day has the “Money shot” for budding photographers of our beautiful Maunga.

Good levels of fitness is required for this hike, and wind + waterproof clothing is essential.
