Verse of The Day
“Ka mea a Ihu ki a ia, Kia whakapaua tou ngakau, tou wairua, tou hinengaro, ki te aroha ki te Ariki, ki tou Atua. Ko te tuatahi tenei, ko te kupu nui. He rite ano te tuarua ki tenei, Kia aroha koe ki tou hoa tata, ano ko koe.” (Matthew 22:37-39)

Written by Andre Hueber, Northern Advocate

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.
