Following on from our recent trek up Whatipu beach I wanted to explore the Karekare end in more detail.

The idea was to  walk over the Zion hill track then down to the beach to check out the Tunnel campsite, exploring the wetlands on the way. It was a bit of a mud-slide coming down the hill but what can you expect it's the Waitakeres in winter.

I have been wanting to do this for quite some time but have been beaten by time, tide and weather. You can see from my star jump attempts that I was pleased to be here. Eliane was keen to explore a new area too.

Today was perfect and there are now plans to camp at the Tunnel campsite sometime in the future.

 Waterup or waterfall? Eliane is checking.
The longest mud slide?
