Verse of The Day
“He whakawhetai tonu taku mahi ki toku Atua mo koutou, mo te aroha noa o te Atua kua homai nei ki a koutou i roto i a Karaiti Ihu; Kua meinga hoki kia hua nga mea katoa ma koutou i roto i a ia, te whakapuaki korero, te matauranga;” (1 Corinthians 1:4-5)

Articles - Te Araroa
Written by Andre Hueber, Northern Advocate   
Sunday, 04 January 2009

A walking track stretching the length of New Zealand is a step closer to completion now a 4km bypass has been created at Ngunguru - eliminating 20km of road walking. The 3000km Te Araroa trail, due to link Cape Reinga to Bluff next year, crosses public land, roads and private property.

Seventy per cent of the track in Northland is open but before the Ngunguru bypass was opened walkers who arrived at the coastal settlement had to walk along Ngunguru Rd all the way to Glenbervie. They'd then cut through Harris Rd on to Pataua North Rd, where they would eventually cross the footbridge to Pataua South.

The Mackerel Forest at Ngunguru has a track popular with horse riders and in November it was upgraded for walking access.

Te Araroa's northern project manager, Fiona Mackenzie, worked with conservation volunteers to cut back bush, build a stile and mark the route.

The bypass track starts on Ngunguru Ford Rd and follows logging trails on pine forested hills and riverbanks, crossing the Waitangi and Teheke rivers. It finishes on Pataua North Rd.
