Otago Goldfields Heritage Trust AGM Field Trip to Waikaia
Friday the 4th and Saturday the 5th September 2015.
We have local identity and enthusiast Garth Mahon on many of our visits plus local station owners/managers and other specialist speakers throughout the weekend.
Do bring your 4WD if you have one. However if you don’t, we always have spare seats so you can jump in with someone else for the 4WD excursions. (Bring a $5 note or something for the driver.)
Accommodation is tight so best to call Terry first. 03 4450 111
