Working Bee – Arapawanui

Whānau are invited to support the working bee at Arapawanui.

  • Saturday 18 March 2023

There are some important things to be aware of:


  • 4×4 highly recommended
  • please car pool from Tangoio as there will be limited vehicle access
  • be prepared to walk a distance


Please note that parts of SH2 are closed so you must use Tangoio Settlement Rd instead.

  • From Napier, travel north along SH2. There is a road closure sign but if you tell the people there what you are doing they will let you through.
  • Just before Tangoio Marae, turn right into Tangoio Settlement Rd (as if you are going to Waipātiki).
  • Turn left after the bridge and follow the road.
  • At the turn-off to Waipātiki rd go left instead and follow Tangoio Settlement Rd which will take you to SH2.
  • Turn first right into Aropaoanui Rd.

Health & Safety:

  • be aware of similar risks & hazards as at Tangoio: contaminated silt, heavy machinery, forestry slash, unstable hillsides
  • proper safety footwear is a must

Please bring:

  • PPE (personal protective equipment) such as masks, glasses, rubber gloves, preferably steel-capped boots, long sleeves
  • First Aid kits
  • hand sanitiser
