2022 Mountain to the Sea Walk

August 12th, 2022

As a part of Conservation Week 2022, STEPS is following Waitītiko Meola Creek from Owairaka Mt Albert to Te Tokaroa Meola Reef over two successive weekends. We will follow the path of Waitītiko as closely as we can as we make our way to the sea.

Day 1, on Sunday the 4th Sept, starting at 1.00pm, is from the summit of Owairaka Mt Albert to Roy Clements Treeway. We will get as close as possible to the source of the stream, have a look at farsighted conservation efforts, fresh spring water and clear wetlands in the middle of Auckland. The walk is 3km long and will take about 2 hours.

Day 2, on Saturday the 10th Sept, starting at 1.00pm, is from Norgrove Ave, Mt Albert to Te Tokaroa Meola Reef. Once again we will get as close to Waitītiko as we can, have a look at conservation efforts made by community groups, schools and other organisations, see lava flow rock forest, and finally reach salt water marsh.

This is a free event but there is a limit of 25 attendees. Please register on eventfinda: Day 1 and Day 2.

There will be a car to shuttle you back to the beginning of the walk if required (mask mandatory).

In case of bad weather, cancellation on the day will be advised here and our facebook page @STEPSNZ.
