  • Staying Safe

    Easy.

    Follow the black A2O markers and the well worn trail

    Perfect throughout.

    Thermal leggings, Short-sleeved thermal top, Long-sleeved thermal top, Seam-sealed waterproof jacket, Gloves, Beanie/thermal headwear, Whistle, First aid kit, Extra food for emergencies, Cellphone, Map.

    There are two water points along the trail, also toilets. I wouldn't drink from any streams along the way due to being in dairy farming country

    Quite muddy in spots after rain and when the frost melts

    Oamaru Harbour
    Great pizzas and tap beer and cider

    Short Black Cafe
