A Labour Weekend lodge trip for Cyclists, Trampers, Cheese Lovers and fireside readers.

I am organising a Labour Weekend lodge trip to the Pohangina Valley, just north of Ashhurst and Palmerston North.

This trip is for everyone who wants to get back to nature, enjoy a tramp or a cycle, or just read a book by the fire and enjoy some camaraderie. My reconnaissance visit found there are good cycling trails, lots of lovely day walks, and more challenging tramps for those so inclined. Interesting places along the cycle trail are Pohangina Wetlands with great plants and birdlife, the Cartwheel Creamery with handcrafted cheeses, and Pohangina itself where the old council chambers house a quaint café, a beautiful original horseshoe-shaped meeting table, and an exhibition of historic photos.

We’ll stay at Camp Rangi in the beautiful wooded Totara Reserve, with a lovely river and Bush Chapel. There are 9 cabins with bunk beds, mattresses and heating. Lovely communal area with fire, plenty of firewood and a large kitchen. $75 for 3 nights - Friday 25th - Sunday 27th October.

Contact me ASAP if you would like to come:
