Dinosaur eggs at Okahu?
Join riders and walkers on an organised trek to discover more about the Ruawai-Okahu district.
A farm trek organised by Ruawai College will allow horse riders and walkers the chance to view local spectacular hilltop views, native bush and historical landscapes normally not available to the public.
The trek will take in three farms, belonging to the Grant, Perreau and Blackwell families.
Apart from the scenery, points of interest include the Grant homestead, at 120 years old it is by far the oldest in the district, an old disused airstrip and an old gumdigger's sod chimney.
After a break for a catered lunch participants will have the chance to view the "famous in Okahu" dinosaur eggs.
The late Galahad Goodwin found them on them on what is now the Blackwell farm. Mr Goodwin was a scientific dairy farmer - right down to his own chemistry shed.
It is said he had an outstanding general knowledge and particular expertise in rocks. He uncovered the eggs many decades ago in a spot now called Dinosaur Gully.
Horses and riders will journey further afield than the walkers, but all will eventually return to the start point at the Blackwell farm. Walkers have the opportunity to be picked up should they need to. The trek leaves the Blackwell farm, 9am, Saturday April 2.
