About this Event

Have you #gottogetout for a STAYCATION, in the beautiful Greater Wellington Region?

The Got To Get Out Wellington Adventurers invites you to join your fellow adventurers on a Wellington weekend away in the Remutaka Forest!

About this Adventure Getaway:

We will be meeting and travelling from "Lower Hutt" to the stunning Orongaronga Valley in the beautiful Remutaka Forest Park.

Adventurers will Hike the popular Ōrongorongo Track. This is an easy grade track that climbs through the mixed podocarp and broadleaf forest along Catchpool Stream. The damp floor of the Catchpool Valley supports many nikau palms, tree ferns, kamahi and tawa trees. Look out for a magnificent grove of huge northern rata trees towering above the forest canopy as the track reaches its highest point!

Schedule:

Saturday -

9am meet at Petone train station (Petone, Lower Hutt 5012). Free overnight parking onsite.

NOTE: We will be providing transport from there!

After our hike, it is a short drive to our accommodation at the Brookfield Outdoor Education Centre Lions Lodge.

From here we will cook some Kai together (dinner BYO), so bring something to share so we can all enjoy a shared meal together!
