Moonbeam Torrent

Moonbeam torrent - as well as being a beautiful name, is a major side creek of the Waitaha valley in Westland. It is not bridged, so in anything other than low flow it becomes a serious crossing. see the photo on Flickr

  • Honora Honora Yep, it took a bit of toing and froing to find a good place to cross it when we went up in 2000. I hear Frank's rope is still hanging in place on the way there! I read an account yesterday where in the mid 1970's it was taking people about 2 and a half hours to walk from Kiwi Flat to Moonlight Hut. I think it took us about 12 hours!
