As the country looks toward Covid-19 Alert Level 2, we are beginning to hear from local businesses who are open or are preparing to open. Now more than ever before these businesses will be reliant upon domestic tourism and turning their focus to New Zealanders. We've put together a list of operators who have contacted the Hauraki Rail Trail, to inform us of their opening. This list will be updated as we receive new information, so please check back regularly and help us back your backyard.
You can find all of our Official Partner listings on the website using the following links. So get in touch with them to see if they're ready to offer the support you need.
