info about Aorere river

wanting info about the Aorere river (from devil boots rd to ferntown).
Aoraki polytech 1st year students are planing an end of year expedition & were thinking about adding this section of the river into it but need to find out about it so we know what to expect.
any info on its grading, flows, hazzards ect would be very helpfull.
cheers rachel.

Hi Rachel

Ive not paddled the section but do know the river well. That entire section is relatively flat id expect grade 1-2+ max at any flow less than flood. Im not sure about hazards at present however the river is wide and slow moving so i dont imagine there could be anything new worth worrying about.

hope this helps,
Ari
