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 are working with the Dunedin 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 oAn official opening at Pineapple Point is planned for  September 1, 2023 (a Friday afternoon) as part of 100 Trips for 100 Years, with a further celebration during the Centenary Weekend.

Update - May 2022: Discussions with the DCC are very positive, and we plan to make a start on the broom clearing over the winter months. We have submitted a document outlining our plans to the DCC, a copy is available here.
