A short walk on the Abel Tasman coastal track then take a left turn on to the Inland track, a fairly steep climb up to Holyoake Clearing taking approx 2 to 2 1/2 hours with stops to catch breath and enjoy the views. A decent lunch stop at the shelter before returning via an alternate track which takes us back down to the coastal track but further north. Return to Marahau via coastal track. Approx 6 to 7 hours round trip. No calls after 9pm please.
Monday. 7.30pm, Nelson Intermediate School, Tipahi Street. Gold coin.
Guest Speaker: Kieran McKay
Arguably New Zealand's best caver, Kieran will talk of his adventures below ground, including the exploraton of Stormy Pot near Mt Arthur. The linking of this system to the Nettlebed caves made it NZ's deepest cave system
Mt Duppa is accessed via a forestry road in the Whangamoa Valley, 30km north-east of Nelson. The track climbs to gain a spur then steeply in places to the summit of Mt Duppa at 1143m. Return the same way. Good views of the coast and Cable Bay.
