Sunday 23 February

Waipara River or Caringa Ridge

Grade: Easy

 Two options both of which are pending farmer agreement. Waipara River gorge or alternatively, we will do a farm walk up the Caringa limestone ridge (off Motunau Beach Road). Afternoon tea afterwards at Glenlock.

Waipara River gorge. Home territory of the recently discovered giant penguin fossils and home of spectacular concretions. Come prepared to get wet! We will do this walk only if river conditions and water quality allow.

Alternatively, we will do a farm walk up the Caringa limestone ridge (off Motunau Beach Road). A fascinating area of limestone formations and with spectacular views out to the coast. Farmer permission pending.
