    Remember Then has enjoyed meeting and hosting this season’s SOBO Te Araroa Walkers for the past 6 months.
    It has become very quiet the past few weeks so we are closing a few days earlier for this season.

    Congratulations to those of you have completed, or are close to completing the trail. Well done all.
    We look forward to meeting lots more adventurous walkers and holiday makers later this year. Judy
