Water supply is temporarily offline in One Tree Point. Our team is aware of the fault and currently doing the repair - estimated to be finished by 2:00pm (Friday 21 January 2022). When water comes back, you may need to "flush" your pipes for a minute or so to let air or sediment out of the system. Just run the tap and it should come back to normal.
The Titoki Creek Wetland walkway will be closed from November 2021 until February 2022, due to remedial works by Golden Bay Cement.
Portland has developed around the mining and processing of limestone to make cement.
This historic process is still alive today with Golden Bay Cement using the Whangarei Harbour to ship cement around the country.
The Portland track gives a good vantage point from where this industrial heritage, both old and new can be viewed.
The time given is for walking the track one way only.
Time: 20 minutes
Distance: 335 metres
The track is essentially surfaced, winding through mangrove swamp and out to a rocky point. There are great views over the harbour and a variety of birdlife to be observed.
From Whangarei, take State Highway One to the south through Otaika. At the junction with Portland Road, about 3.5 km from Otaika, turn left onto Portland Road.
Follow Portland Road towards the cement works, over the railway bridge (almost to the factory entrance) then turn left into Portland Wharf Road.
The track starts a further 240 metres on the left, where there is limited parking.
