Mt Auck­land Walk now closed

Walking New Zealand - - Walk Talk -

In is­sue 250 we fea­tured an ar­ti­cle on walk­ing Mt Auck­land in Atu­anui Scenic Re­serve by Mike Giri who wrote the ar­ti­cle sev­eral months ago. The Depart­ment of Con­ser­va­tion ad­vises us that now there is a rahui put in place by the own­ers of the re­serve, Ngati Whatua o Kaipara. This is to pre­vent any spread of Kauri Dieback, and pro­tect the for­est. While it is a cool ar­ti­cle high­light­ing the re­serve, and the lovely walk, it’s a bit of a shame that this may at­tract more walk­ers to the re­serve, says DOC. Also, the view­ing tower on the sum­mit has now been re­moved, as that was part of DOC’s obli­ga­tion for the trans­fer of the re­serve.
