9:00 am - 5:00 pm
This is a reminder about the North Shore KCC trip to the lava caves on Rangitoto Island on Sunday, 16 September. The ferry leaves Devonport at 9.25am (city at 9.15am). Please book on the ferry directly with Fullers by 13 September using the booking number 440524 so that, if there are enough people, we can get a group discount. We will be returning by ferry at 4.00pm. There is a ferry at 12.45pm if anyone needs to leave early. Please also book at https://goo.gl/g7N36g so that I have a list of the people coming on the trip.
After visiting the lava caves with our expert Peter Crossley, we will climb up to the summit. It will take about an hour to reach the caves including some stops along the way. If there is time after descending Rangitoto, we will visit the Kidney Fern Glen.
Please bring food and plenty of water to drink. There is no supply of drinking water on the island. Please bring a torch and/or headlight, and wear long trousers and sturdy shoes. The rugged lava surfaces are sharp and unforgiving. Also, wear a hat and sunscreen, and bring a jacket too.
Before leaving home check that your gear is free of rodents, insects and skinks. Ensure your shoes are clean with no soil or seeds. Do not bring any open bags – bags must be sealed.
