First Overnighter of Summer Gunn’s Camp, Hollyford Valley 7th – 8th Dec 2019

Following an organised ride from Dunedin and taking in a selection of back roads, we will be spending the night at the legendary Gunn’s Camp.

The last Public Works Camp of its type left in New Zealand, Gunn’s Camp in the Hollyford Valley was built in the 1930s and is now run by the Hollyford Museum Charitable Trust. It is situated 8km off the Milford road down the Hollyford Valley, and 10km from the road end at the start of the Hollyford track.

Accommodation has been booked in one of the historic cabins, at this stage for up to 6 people. Cost will be about $30 per person, depending on total numbers. If sufficient interest is shown, more cabins can be booked. Tent sites are also available.

As kitchen facilities are quite basic, you will need to bring your own evening meal and breakfast. You will also need to bring your own cooking utensils, plate, cup and cutlery. Hot showers are available.
