Pilgrimage to the Pinnacles

You are welcome to join us on a journey to the Pinnacles to celebrate November’s full moon. We will leave the car park at 11am on Sunday. The track to the hut is about 3 hours. We will rest at the hut and leave at 6pm to climb up to the Pinnacles for the sunset. Our photographer will capture a panorama of the sun and the full moon in the sky at the same time. We will return to the hut to sleep. At 5am we will return to the summit for another panoramic photo of the sunrise and full-moonset. We will have breakfast at the hut then return to the carpark when we are all ready.
Accomodation is $15 for an adult, $7.50 for child. Tickets at the DOC HQ on the road to the carpark. Cooking utensils and gas stoves are provided at the hut. Warm gear is recommended for the Summit.
