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 Whananaki Coastal Walkway is one of the longer walks in the district with unspoilt coastal scenery and a monument in memory of the freighter Capitaine Bougainville which caught fire and sank off this coast in September 1975. The monument names those who were lost.
The monument is about 2 kms south of Whananaki South and is only accessible by foot.
Car parking is available for vehicles with good ground clearance at Whananaki South, at the end of Pukekawa Road.
Limited parking is available on McAuslin Road at Sandy Bay.
Time: 3 hours (one-way)
Distance: 5.85 km
From the south, the walk follows an easy grade metal track for the first 3.5 km, then it becomes a grass surface.
From the north, the track is well waymarked and is a combination of mown and grazed grass, becoming a metalled track beyond the pine plantation.
At Pukekawa Road, there is an information board. The Bougainville Memorial (at low tide only) is accessible by walking along the beach to the far end. There is then a waymark post that indicates where a steep path rises up to the monument. There is a scrabble across shore rocks to reach this.
