On Saturday 23 October the Mount Manaia track will be re-opened to the public.This is a continuation of the programme which, in 2009, saw tracks within the Bream Head Scenic Reserve being upgraded to great acclaim.The Busby Head/Smugglers Bay track (4.5km) and Peach Cove Track (5.7km) are wonderful coastal walks.

The Mount Manaia track climbs through regenerating native bush to a summit some 400m above sea level. The higher you climb,the more spectacular the views become until ultimately you reach the easily accessible look-out point at the summit.Great views of Bream Head,The Hen and Chicken Islands, and of course Whangarei Harbour can be seen from the Track, which is listed in the AA's 101 Regional 'Must dos'. As with last year, the work done really has made a huge improvement to the track,and should result in it becoming a more significant attraction within the area.

There is ample parking at the foot of the trail, by the Mount Manaia Social Club.

A dawn powhiri will be held to mark the occasion.For walking enthusiasts the great news is that the track is available again, and is just one among a whole series of great walks on Whangarei Heads.There is plenty of accommodation available in the area at prices to suit all budgets.

Come and see for yourself,you will not be disappointed!
