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.

Waitomo District Christmas Parade

15 Dec 2014, 11:43 AM

Rora Street Te Kuiti was the place to be on Friday night. The event was a great success with 38 float entries, food stalls and hundreds of spectators enjoying the Waitomo District Christmas Parade for 2014.

An amazing amount of effort was put into this years’ Christmas themed floats - which made for an exciting and festive parade.

Results of the float competition are:

  • Winner - Te Kuiti Kindergarten
  • Second place - Te Kuiti Playcentre
  • Third place - Maniapoto Family Violence Network

Waitomo District Council would like to say a big thank you to everyone involved in the Christmas Parade. The event was a great success and it could not have happened without the valuable support from our community.
