Grade 4

Nearest Town: Waihi

Registration Region: Waihi Beach

Duration: 4 - 5 Hours

Start Time: 9:00 am - Karangahake Gorge Car park

Cost: Donation

Parking will be at the Karangahake Reserve. Crossing the first swing bridge, we will take the upper right hand trail to the Scotsman Gully track. After completing this track, we will clean our footwear and proceed left on a  road (County road) on a gradual climb for around 1km. The Dubbo 96 track branches off the County Road/No 7 Level track.  The Dubbo 96 track takes us down to Dickeys Flat where we will follow the track and enter a tunnel to take us through to the Crown track. This crosses the the Waitawheta River via a suspension bridge and takes us back to the Car park. We can also incorporate the Windows walk subject to how we are doing for time.  

Bring lunch and water.  Wear sturdy shoes or hiking boots.  Walking poles can be helpful.  Be prepared for some steep, scrambly areas.



  • Bring Food and Drink
  • Walking Poles (recommended)

  • Jacket

PLEASE NOTE: Participants are responsible for their own safety equipment, food, water, clothing and vehicles.
