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.

Let's talk compost

Sunday 08 November 2020 11:00 am to 01:00 pm

Join sustainability consultant, permaculture designer, educator and environmental activist Leo Murray of Why Waste, as we spend a morning exploring the link between the future of Papatūānuku and the fertility in our soil.
With a focus on at home and on the go solutions, Leo will go through the various approaches to reducing waste, as well as bringing us up to speed on the ongoing mystery of compostable plastics.
Tickets to this event are $10 and attendees will receive discounts to a range of composting products at the end of the workshop.
This event is subsidised through the Waitomo District Council's Waste Minimisation Levy funding.
Tickets are available here
