Feedback on Tracks and Trails

Our spectacular outdoors bring walkers, trampers, cyclists and other visitors wanting to share our awesome lifestyle. But we’re still inspired to ask if we’re making the most of it?  

With our iwi and hapū partners, we’re working on two big projects that would tie our most stunning landmarks into a great Kiwi experience. 

We’ve been working on taking our Coastal Walkway from Bell Block to Waitara. We have been working with hapū on a design that helps tell the stories of the historic landscape which features once thriving pā sites and their links to kai moana beds, and ancient routes to the Mounga.  

Our second big idea is the Taranaki Traverse, up the Waiwhakaiho River to Mounga Taranaki, and then down the Kaitake Ranges from Pukeiti to Ōākura.  

It would be another world-class destination in our own backyard, working with DOC, Taranaki Regional Council, iwi and other partners.  

Our tracks and trails and green spaces are part of our heritage.  Should we build on that heritage by making Tracks and Trails a focus of our ten-year plan?
