1  South Island / Oxford, Mt / Mt Oxford Date: December 15, 2011, 07:33:48 PM
A good 8 hour round trip starting from Coopers carpark. It had been raining heavily for a few days before we climbed up and so the track was quite muddy and slippery in areas on the way down. Because we didn't start until 1.30pm, it started to get dark on the way down. Luckily we had head torches with us, which we used for about the last half an hour. It would have been a bit dangerous had we not brought them with us. The bush was not particularly attractive and their was hardly any wildlife except for wasps that were in abundance as we were walking through farm land to get to the track, however we did not see any once we reached the bush and started climbing up. Lovely views from the top.
2  South Island / Botanical Hill / Centre of New Zealand Date: December 15, 2011, 07:24:39 PM
Steady but short climb to the top of the hill. Well developed track. Beautiful views. Was considered to be the centre of New Zealand.
