Badges like this one were awarded to only those who completed a four day and three night trek around the Mount Taranaki / Egmont. The start and finish of the tramp was Camp Waiweranui, on the banks of the Stoney River and the the overnight stops were at Dawson Falls, East Egmont, and Camp Challenge. Only a few of these badges were ever awarded such was the difficulty of the trek.
