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.

Alternative water source project starts

9 Dec 2021, 7:57 AM

A project to investigate an alternative water source for Te Kuiti has started this week.
A drilling rig has been set-up at the eastern end of Te Kuiti Domain, and will drill to a target depth of 120m. This will take about a month.
The purpose is to locate an alternative or supplementary water source for Te Kuiti to improve the resilience of our current, single source supply.
