The massive clean-up and repair of storm damage to our District’s walking tracks is continuing. Most tracks are now open, although some tracks are still a few weeks off being fixed.
Parihaka Scenic Reserve, the AH Reed Kauri Park and the Coronation Reserve in Western Hills were among the worst hit tracks in the storm.
“We’ve still got a big job ahead of us,” says Parks Technical Officer Stuart Jackson. “Our contractors are working flat-out and we are trying to reopen these remaining tracks as quickly as we can.”

Meet Christina Nuku who graduated with majors in Indigenous Studies and Policy. Through Awanuiārangi, Christina experienced a 3-month exchange programme at the University of Northern British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada. She shares “the exchange connected me with the Nisga’a people, First Nations tribal systems, communities and hauora programmes. It informed my studies and opened my mind. It was a genuine privilege to connect with the tangata whenua there, and an opportunity I would never otherwise have had”
“The difference at Awanuiārangi is the whanaungatanga. Our kaiako cultivated a supportive and nurturing environment”. Study remotely with us in 2021!
