Manga Pirau Street vehicle entrance reopens

Great news today for all those who’ve been revving their engines waiting for the Manga Pirau Street vehicle entrance to open. As at lunchtime on Thursday 02 December 2021 a digger had moved the concrete blocks and was busy reshaping the track so vehicles, horses and pedestrians can actually get onto the beach.

When you’re driving, riding or walking on the beach please avoid the ‘corner’ south of the river where Oystercatchers and other birds are nesting. Stick close to the river and the high-tide mark. Pedestrians: you have the advantage of being able to easily see the birds — just be cautious as you walk around and please don’t let dogs or kids harass birds.

And many thanks to the Miratana family for allowing the community to continue to cross their private land!
