As you near the gorge at the southern end of Te Kumi Flat, a clear track leads 20m from the river bank into open punga bush where a tall blue-tarp-roofed shelter looks out towards the river – Te Kumi tent camp (Te Kimu Biv) Te Kumi Tent Camp / biv consists of a tarp-on-timer-frame kitchen and a separate family tent as a bunkroom. The forest floor around has also been cleared allowing for many additional tents to be pitched. A large stone-built fireplace dominates the open western wall of the kitchen – a solid frame holding an iron bar for pots above it. A bench has been cut into the slope round 2 sides, and the third has a long table. Numerous pots, pans and reading material are stores in secure storage boxes beneath. A couple of camp chairs are the final luxury. A great, spacious, weatherproof shelter, looking out over the river.
