Stage 7

“Onslow Serpentine”

Stage 7: A chance to see some classic Central Otago terrain and a unique wetland landscape that is unlike anything else we've seen at a previous Chapter of GODZone. Teams will use their packrafts to cross Lake Onslow before setting about finding a small number of cunningly hidden checkpoints on foot. Once completed they arrive at the Upper Taieri River and follow this complicated river system down to the small settlement of Paerau. There are hundreds of small channels, lakes and backwaters on this Serpentine wetland. Could be tricky to follow at night!
