A captivating article, OVER THE “HUMP” TO THE LAKE, from more than 100 years ago, provides a glimpse of the area surrounding Tuatapere in the form of a narrative detailing a trip by cart, horse and foot from Orepuki to Lake Huaroko and back; via Tuatapere, Bluecliff, and the Hump Ridge. Reproduced here as closely as possible from the original article. Published in the Otago Witness, Issue 2649, 21 December 1904.
