New wetland project for Wairakei Estate

The new Wairua O Tahorakuri Wetland on Wairakei Estate is envisaged as a two-year project. The new wetland will form a natural extension to the recently completed Tahorakuri Wetland, located approximately 700m downstream.

On completion of the project the two wetlands will be connected along the Waiwhakarewaumu Stream via a community pathway. The vision for this project is to restore this environmental corridor from the Waikato River, and to establish riparian plantings of approximately 9,000 native plants to support yet another a thriving ecosystem on Wairakei Estate.
