The Whangawehi Mountain Bike ride took place today in Mahia with a good number of bikers. This year, Adventure Wairoa organised a very well supported Kid’s Challenge.
A big thank you to all the participants and supporting crew. More info will be posted early next week. We hope to see you next year.
Adventure Wairoa and the Whangawehi team are all working hard to get the second Whangawehi Mountain Bike Ride underway for this Saturday (28th of January), meeting at 9.30 am beside the Mahia Fishing Club . If you are looking for something to do, come along and experience a mountain bike ride over private land ($10/adult). This year, a special children’s (5 to 8 years of age) event has been organised starting at 10.45 am so bring them along (free).

On Saturday the 14th of December, a group of enthusiastic trampers walked through the forest down to the Whangawehi boat ramp. The weather was great with a nice sea breeze towards the lower reaches. The surprise was to discover that the shelter built along the river was nearly finished (enclosed). All visitors were impressed by this hidden facility in such a remote place and are looking forward to utilising it in the future.
Thank you all for supporting the guided walks. The last walk will take place on Wednesday the 18th of January. See you there.
The Whangawehi walk was well supported with a group of 15 trampers happy to visit the area. The last stretch was hot but we all made it ! Thank you all for your support and enjoy the photos.
The Whangawehi Summer activity programme is well underway with 3 walks already delivered. Support and feedback received so far has been great. This year, thanks to the support of Malcolm Smith (DOC), several walks started at the Mahia Scenic Reserve. A short kilometre of bush bashing allowed the connection with a forestry track and the traditional Whangawehi track. Trampers had the opportunity to check out the new plantings as well as learn more about the restoration programme, water and fish monitoring and vibrant local history.
This weeks walks will follow the traditional Whangawehi walkway.
Thank you all for your support.
