Event description
Have you #gottogetout for a STAYCATION, here in Tamaki Makaurau?

About this Event

We've gained access to an awesome 20 person hiking hut deep in the Waitakere Ranges (there are no public ones so this is a special case), so why not just have an adventure, while staying in Auckland!?

We will hike Te Henga Walkway on Saturday moring, with the GTGO bus dropping you / picking up at both ends, then in the evening we will spend the night in this awesome tramping hut, with an open fire, shared kai (byo) and bunk beds.

Expect no phone signal, lots of Korero (discussion) and making friends.

Next morning, another short hike (1hr each way to Anawhata beach) then home by early afternoon.

This is a kid / whanau friendly adventure, though uder 16s must be with adult supervision and must be able to walk around 10Km / 5 hours and have good rain jacket and gear.

The hike is rated intermediate (due to it's length) so good fitness required. Dogs not allowed on trail sorry.

Your ticket includes;

- Pickup and drop off from Ponsonby

- Drop off to start and end of Te Henga Walkway

- Use of 'invite only' tramping hut (Waitakere)

- Trip hosting by Got To Get Out (trained guides, first aid)

By purchasing a ticket, you are also supporting our Hike One Give One initiative to get Tamaraki (youth) outdoors for FREE.

Gear list will be supplied to all ticket holders. Expect to need

- hiking gear (bag, boots, warm clothing, jacket etc)

- sleeping bag

- food (can stay on the bus)
