Wilderness Whare Gifted To Ngāti Wai
Ngāti Wai Trust Board has taken over a forest hut used for a long-running youth programme.
Presbyterian Support can no longer afford to fund the Northland Wilderness Experience at Oakura Bay north of Whangarei, so it looked for someone to take over.
The hut, which is on land leased from Matariki Forests Rayonier New Zealand for a peppercorn rent, can sleep nine people.
The gift comes with two waka ama, a trailer, kayaks and associated equipment.
