Citizenship in our Community
An intergenerational vision
Wairakei Estate likes to feel connected to our community and to support it in meaningful and practical ways, including sponsorships for local organisations and services.
- Supporting the invaluable service provided by the Greenlea Rescue Helicopter.
Wairakei Estate sponsors community events such as:
- Erupt Lake Taupo Festival
- Taupo Ironkidz Triathlon
We also support the valuable work of:
- Bird Rescue New Zealand
- Ducks Unlimited
- Wetlands New Zealand
Wairakei Estate opens its gates as a venue for a range of charity and fundraising events including the Tauhara Mountain Half-marathon.
Another community initiative was refurbishment of a rest area on Achilles Farm, on the edge of SH 5, between Taupo and Rotorua. Wairakei Estate maintains the amenity so travellers can pull off the highway and into the rest area, stop, and take a break in safety, before continuing their journey.
