Pineapple Point - Proposed Centennial Project

Pineapple Point was a well-frequented lookout point alongside the current Pineapple Track. It is referenced in tramping reports that pre-date the club, as well as being mentioned as a resting place during the climb of Flagstaff on the OTC's inaugural trip on September 1, 1923.

The OTMC plan to liaise with the City Council (landowner) with a view to install a short side-track from the Pineapple Track to the Point, and installing a seat and information panel / plaque etc. to celebrate the Centenary of the club. From Pineapple Point, the original Bush Track (now referred to as the original Pineapple Track) can be used to complete a circuit back to Booth Road.

If our plans do come to fruition, then it would be appropriate to have an opening at Pineapple Point on September 1, 2023 (a Friday afternoon), with a further celebration during the Centenary Weekend.
