Verse of The Day
“Ko tenei hei whakaaro mo koutou, ko tera i a Karaiti Ihu: Ahakoa hoki i a ia te ahua o te Atua, kihai i meinga e ia te rite ki te Atua hei taonga kapo mai; Engari i mea i a ia ano kia poaha, ka mau ki te ahua o te pononga, ka meinga kia rite ki te tangata; A ka kitea nei tona ahua e rite ana ki to te tangata, ka whakapapaku ia i a ia, ka meinga kia ngohengohe ahakoa ki te mate, ae ra, ki te mate o te ripeka.” (Philippians 2:5-8)

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."
