Yarrangobilly Caves House

This is newly restored in mid 2013. Owned and operated by NPWS, they have done a superb job of restoring it.

There are two wings, offering different standards of accommodation. The 1917 wing is quite luxurious, with ensuites and an amazingly well equipped kitchen. The other wing is more basic and more communal, but also cheaper. You can book out a whole wing for a group.

It is a great base for the surrounding area: eg long flat plain and out to Blue Waterhole and the canyon beyond. Plus of course the caves, and the thermal pool.

New Zealand

In planning for his walks in NZ early in 2012, Tony Hickson found it helpful for the group to pay for The Bush Club to be a group member of YHA NZ for a 12 month period to March 2013. This has given them useful discounts on accommodation which have easily exceeded the cost of membership.

This membership card is available to any Bush Club leader. If you are organising or planning a walk in NZ, do get in touch with Tony ( find his email in the walks programme) and he will mail the card to you so you and your group can benefit from the membership.

Mt Ruapehu

Waikato Ski club lodge on Mt Ruapehu can be used as a base over summer for outdoor activities.

The lodge is fully equipped with a good kitchen and lounge area and sleeps up to 34. The location would provide easy access to a number of walks such as the Tongariro Crossing or around the Mountain walks or even just for enjoying the stunning scenery on the Mountain.

Bookings can be for any number of people and for as little as one night or for as long as you require.

Mt Ruapheu is a very popular destination, with most accommodation being very expensive.

As the ski season is only 3 months long, the Waikato Tramping Club is offering accommodation to visitors over the summer months when the ski field is closed. This helps the club cover the costs of maintaining the lodge.

The tramping club owns the lodge and there is information regarding the location and charges on their website.
