ANZAC Poppies in the Park is held at the Historical Maritime Park and Museum in Paeroa from 14 - 25 April, 10am – 3pm each day. Make a day of the activities on offer, and combine with a short adventure on the Rail Trail for the whole family.
You no longer have to be an eagle-eyed visitor to see the progress being made on the Te Aroha to Matamata extension. Construction company Splice started work in January, and have been busy forming the Trail.
Exciting changes are afoot, as work begins to remove many of the old cattle-stops found along the Hauraki Rail Trail. The Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE) is supporting the trail to remedy the remaining 94 problematic cattle-stops between Kopu and Te Aroha by the end of April 2019.
Please note a diversion is scheduled on the Trail between Kopu and Pipiroa from 25 February - 25 March 2019.
Work on the Trail is heating up with two major extensions and storm damage repairs underway, making the most of summer’s great weather.
Please be advised that there will be a closure of the Owharoa Bridge at Waitawheta Road whilst urgent repairs are undertaken.
The period of closure is from 20 May - 10 June 2019.
Be in to WIN! Have you ridden the Trail recently?
A whopping 50 Stoats, 28 Rats and 31 Hedgehogs have been trapped on the Trail since June 2017. Keeping the Trail pest free is essential for the survival of our native plants and animals.
We're thrilled to get the keys to this super new Truck for the Hauraki Rail Trail.
