Verse of The Day
“Otiia i a ia e hurihuri ana i enei mea, na, ka puta moemoea mai tetahi anahera a te Ariki ki a ia, ka mea, E Hohepa, e te tama a Rawiri, kaua e hopohopo ki te tango i a Meri, i tau wahine; na te Wairua Tapu hoki tona hapu. A e whanau ia he tama, me hua e koe tona ingoa ko IHU: no te mea mana e whakaora tona iwi i o ratou hara.” (Matthew 1:20-21)

Owners of an exclusive lifestyle development on the Northland coast have built a $1 million public walkway through their property and handed it over to the Department of Conservation.

The new track is part of the 5km Mangawhai Heads cliff-top walk, which is acclaimed for its spectacular views from Whangarei to Pakiri.

DoC assets manager Shaughan Anderson said the Bream Tail Development had provided a quality track which improved the visitor's experience. It deviated from the previous route along an old farm track to include coastal forest featuring dense groves of nikau palms.

The developer had to negotiate the route shift with the department and also paid costs of iwi liaison, archaeological inspection and landscaping.

"It's a pretty walk with magnificent views and outstanding bush," said Mr Anderson. "It's walkable and open now."
