2972 Hamilton's Gullies

Sunday 5th December 2021

This will be a gentle day recovering after a very entertaining evening on the club’s social calendar.

We will move around by private cars and this will give you the opportunity to join in or depart at your convenience. We’ll start at 9am by parking at the end of Lewis street in Melville.

Our aim will be to visit 4 gullies in Hamilton City. The first one will be the Mangakotutuku gully where there are stairs, a walk beside the stream, lots of birdlife. We’ll return to our vehicles by the same route.

Next stop will be the Mangaone gully behind Tamahere Eventide home. There has been a great network of excellent tracks (almost suitable for wheelchairs - a bit steep in parts for these but easy to walk). A couple of residents have recently set up a pest control operation along the tracks and are achieving good bait uptake. I hope to be able to arrange the opportunity to dine at the café for those who wish to do so. Otherwise you can bring your lunch and enjoy it on seating in the gully.

And the next stop will be the A K Seeley gully in Whyte St., behind the Boys’ high school. Dr. Seeley worked on his land here for 50 years and it is now a flagship for gully restoration.

And then if you are still keen, we could visit the Mangaiti gully on Hukanui road. This has a lovely board walk through it and there are lots of birds to listen to – gentle on the ears after the night before.

I expect the day will end about 4pm but as you can read, there are plenty of opportunities to come and go at will.
