Forest and Bird walk - Waitawheta/twin kauris


Leave Hamilton at 8.00, drive via Paeroa and Karangahake and turn right at Owharoa Falls (just before Waikino) to meet at end of Franklin Road at 9.00am.

Apart from climbing (not very high) to see the twin kauri, two large trees left behind by the loggers, the walk is entirely flat because it will follow an old timber tramway. No avoiding getting feet wet on tracks to and from the kauri, but there are some bridges once we return to main track, which crosses the river several times as we go through the dramatic volcanic gorge. Depending on fitness and enthusiasm, can go as far as desired along the tramway.
Great family outing.

Leader: Philip Hart phone 07 856 7992

Begins next Monday, 11 February.


A week of drop-in sessions for Hamiltonians wanting to become more familiar with the Proposed District Plan
The Proposed District Plan, which is currently open for public submissions, governs the way Hamilton looks and feels and sets the rules for future development.

It includes tighter development and design rules, plans to manage the city’s growth more effectively and measures to protect the character of neighbourhoods.

The aim of the drop-in sessions is to provide more information on key aspects of the Proposed District Plan. Display panels will provide detailed explanations about some of the key changes and expert staff will be on hand to answer questions on the plan and the submission process.

The sessions are being held in the Reception Lounge, ground floor, Hamilton City Council, Garden Place between 10am and 7pm Monday to Friday, 11-15 February.

The public are invited to drop in at any time between those hours.
In addition the Proposed District Plan is available online at www.hamilton.co.nz/districtplan along with instructions on how to use our simple online submission process.
