27 - 29 January
John Reid hut renovation  

Ian Morris Email: ian.morris.nz@gmail.com

Phone: 546 4785

The funding has been approved for the renovation of John Reid hut and now we need five keen people with some building skills to work with Silvano removing the old fireplace and chimney, rebuilding the wall, installing a new wood burner and lining the ceiling.  Fly-in and fly-out so there will be three full days for working.

Don't worry if you miss out on this trip as there will be further stages to complete the work and paint the hut.

 

27 - 29 January
1000 Acre Plateau Fit (Scale: 3.3)  $29

Kath Ballantine Email: kath.ballantine@gmail.com

Phone: 027 931 5689

The plan is to leave Nelson by 1p.m.on Friday, drive to the road end car park and walk into Lake Matiri Hut (3hrs) for overnight stay. The following day is a steep climb to Poor Pete's Hut (3hrs), then a further 3hrs across 1000 Acre Plateau to Larrikins Creek Hut to stay 2 nights. Sunday we can either climb the Needle or the Haystack, or explore 100 Acre Plateau. On Monday we walk out to cars and return to Nelson.  

Matiri Hut has 8 bunks, but Larrikins Creek only 4 so advisable that some trampers carry tents. Both huts require 1 standard hut ticket per night.
3km from car park we cross the West branch of the Matiri River - easily passable in normal river conditions, but will be a consideration if it rains.
