Ticket Information:

Walk 01 - Kaitorete Spit and Te Waihora – Stage 2, with QEII Trust Representative Alice Shanks, Denise Ford, Selwyn District Council Biodiversity Officer, Karen Banwell, Whaka Ora Healthy Harbour Programme Manager and Denise Spencer, Department of Conservation

Join Alice as she continues with the 2nd phase of her multi-year challenge to walk the entire Spit and around Te Waihora. Her passion is to inspire more people to understand the natural and cultural values of the spit, lakeshore and wetlands, and how to access these areas. Alice will help you understand the dryland ecology here, and some of the recent issues with maintaining it. Denise will provide her knowledge on the birds, lizards, insects and plants. The walk will involve some car shuffling and carpooling to avoid having to walk there and back. Be prepared for a fascinating day. Note that this will be a moderate to hard walk because of the soft ground, distance, and exposure to wind and sun.

Duration: 7-8 hours, 12km. This includes carpooling at the start & time for lunch

TRAMP - Track mostly unformed

Wear tramping boots or sturdy walking shoes, and gaiters or long socks with trousers tucked in to keep sand out of boots. Bring lunch, snacks, water bottle, sunhat, sunscreen, weatherproof gear and hand sanitiser.

Covid 19 - All participants are required to carry their own hand sanitiser. If at Alert Level 2 please bring your own face mask to wear in any instance where appropriate social distancing may not be easily maintained (car pools etc).
