The day started at 8.30 am at the car park in Masterton, then an hour and half drive to get to the car park at Coppermine Creek. Started walking at 10 am at a gentle pace to match the group. We stopped to read the information on the way.
When we got to the magazine shaft all but two went in for a look at the cave weta. At first it didn’t look like there were many and after a closer look there were lot of them. From there we went to the mine site and stopped there for an early lunch. There is a pile of rail irons there. Then back out the group chose not do the loop track this day and have an easy walk back out. The club trip was enjoyed by five members and Leader Stan.
