June the 5th is the 30th year of the Brass Monkey Motorcycle Rally.  It is held in Oturehua, as always, and this happens to be the place where Justin & Julia have been running the Crowsnest Accommodation unit.

They will be opening the Crowsnest for the Brass Monkey event but beds are filling up quickly, so if you are planning on coming and want a warm bed to sleep in then contact Juli asap.

The weather down there has been nice sunny days but cold frosty nights.

Justin Ryan & Julia Maelzer are running a small backpackers over summer down on the Otago Rail Trail.  The city, town, village, collection of houses is called Oturehua and it is 25 k from Ranfurly.

Our backpackers is called the Crow’s Nest and we have a large shared dorm that can sleep 12 to 14.  Two self contained cabins (Jack & Jill) each with a double bed, small cooking facility, and bathroom.  We can fit in another single into the room but they are small cabins.  There is also a Bach (bit rough around the edges but warm and cosy inside).  This has a double and single bed.  Its own cooking facility (semi outside) but you must share the toilet and shower with the backpackers.  We also have a large tent site where we plan to host next years Easter ride called the Grass Monkey.

There is a great pub down the road who produce some excellent food.  This is run by Grahame & Liz Jones who are from Christchurch and recently moved down there.

Check out our website HERE for things to do, and as an offer to members we will provide a free continental breakfast (cereal, bread, juice etc) to all BMWOR Member.  Please let us know you are a member when booking.
