Tony's Tararuas

This set of pages preserves and makes available Tony Gates' enthusiasm and extraordinary knowledge of the Tararua Ranges.

Almost 20 years ago, Tony embarked on a labour of love - to write a series of articles for the newsletter on his joy of the Tararuas.  It began in April 1994 with a storey called "Gorgeous Gorges".  Over the following months emerged a series of articles featuring the various catchments of the Tararuas and the tramping to be offered within each area.  Note that time will have caught up with some of the tracks and huts of past years - they may have become defunct or been downgraded.  Nevertheless, read, learn and enjoy.
