Lake Waikaremoana Track

We pushed on after our break at the Whanganui Hut. Now that a Great Walks’ booking system has been implemented, it’s possible to reserve places in DoC’s Great Walks’ huts and to know you are guaranteed bunk space for the night. This wasn’t the case in 1987, and so – not knowing whether of not we’d get a bed for the night – we carried two tents with us (one for Heather and me; the other for Evan and Tim). However, as we were able to get places in huts each night we were on the track, we carried a lot of unnecessary weight with us.
