Over five days in February, Helen Quinlan and Tricia Walbridge tramped 85 km along the Old Ghost Road from Lyell on the Buller Gorge to Seddonville near the mouth of the Mokihinui River. The stunning scenery, wonderfully tame bird life, mining history of the region and the fascinating story of the track made the Old Ghost Road an all-time favourite of theirs.
Join the Club’s winter sports enthusiasts for a glass of gluhwein, then sit back and hear how the Club can help you to enjoy some great adventures in the snow this winter, and to stay safe.
Please note the earlier start time of 7.00pm and $4 entry charge.
In January, five members of the VUW Tramping Club led by Ivan Andrews set out on an 11-day Southern Alps crossing from the Rakaia to the West Coast via the Bracken snowfield and Ivory Lake Hut.
In June 2017, Carol and Ray Molineux did a 14-day rafting trip down the Alsek River between Haines Junction in Canada and the coast in Glacier Bay National Park, Alaska. The Alsek drains the eastern edge of one of the world’s largest non-polar ice-caps and flows through an area of incredible, pristine wilderness.
Come along from 7.00 pm and enjoy a drink and nibbles followed by a fun evening of quizzing and prizes. There will be a raffle with proceeds going toward supporting young people in the club.

Copies of the Denz biography will be available for sale at the meeting for $40 cash.
From 1946 to 1964, George Borthwick was raised and educated in a multicultural home for orphans and abandoned children in Kalimpong, a hill station in the Darjeeling District and frontier town on the borders of Sikkim, Tibet and Bhutan. Local wildlife included jackals, wild dogs, monkeys, the odd tiger or elephant, flying foxes, exotic birds and a huge variety of flora and fauna.
