A long (13km one way), in-and-out day tramp, better done as an over-nighter, from the end of the public access section of Taharua Road through Poronui Station on a poled track to the Oamaru Hut. The tramp involves two river crossings and these are not recommended if rivers are high, the first one over the Mohaka can be waist deep and does have strong flow. If you get trapped at the Hut due to water level then it is possible to get out via the Oamaru Track to Te Iringa – quite a long way and a bit of a grunt. Most of the walk through Poronui is on farm road or wide smooth gravel or grass tracks – all a bit too manicured for the hardened tramper but with scenery that is well worth seeing.
