About 150 people took part in the Roxburgh and Districts Lions Club fundraising 4WD trip and participants saw back country that was usually not accessible to the public, one of the organisers, Peter Macdougall, said.
``The runholders opened their land up to us for the trip for people to see some really special country.''
The trip started at Millers Flat, climbing almost 1200m to Mt Benger and down to the Deans huts, on Moa Hills, owned by John and Margaret Deans. It then continued to the Junction hut, on Mt Hope, owned by Robert and Janine Gunn, before returning through Coal Creek to Millers Flat.
Lions club president James Hill said the trip had raised about $5000, which would go towards Kaikoura earthquake relief work and Teviot Valley projects.
