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.

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.
