Motakiora/Brook Park top section closed until further notice
For health and safety reasons, Waitomo District Council has closed the top section of Motakiora/ Brook Park for ALL recreational use until further notice.
As a result of the weekend’s heavy rainfall event, a section of track to the summit is hazardous and a large slip has taken out part of the mountain bike track, which is also popular with walkers.
There is risk of further multiple slips and damage if the rain continues.
The rotunda and toilet is still accessible, however we urge residents and users to exercise caution if entering this area.
Signage advising of the closure will be erected onsite soon. Please do not venture into the red zone.
Thank you for your understanding and co-operation.

WDC would like to advise that road works are currently underway on Waitomo Caves Road. The works involve laying drainage from Waitomo Village to the Waitomo Caves building.

Further work on the same segment of Waitomo Caves Road will commence in July. The work involves milling of the road surface, making it level and then laying down new pavement. Traffic will be delayed at times, please consider this when planning your travel arrangements.
