Hikurangi

Welcome to 

Northland, New Zealand

What's on...

Welcome to historic Hikurangi.

 

Hikurangi is a small township fifteen minutes north of Whangarei.  It is the gateway to the Tutukaka coast and the perfect place to stop for a coffee on your way North.  Hikurangi is a name used in many parts of New Zealand because it commemorates a well-known peak in Hawaiki, from where Maori migrated.

In 1875 a road to Whangarei was established and Hikurangi became a timber milling centre. It further flourished in 1894 when coal mining began in the area.  Today it is still a small busy community as a service centre to the local farming areas of Hukerenui, Opuawhanga, Marua, Puhipuhi, Whakapara and Towai plus the neighbouring coastal area of Helena Bay.  The town has a primary school, two churches an historic pub, a number of early childhood centres, sports facilities, four square, beauty salons and even a museum.

Gomez Park Proposal 2021

In 2010 an idea was presented to HBA by WDC to use a significant sized piece of land located on Gomez Road as a Motorsport and Outdoor Recreation Park.  The Park was never approved by the community but has remained on the HBA agenda for the last 10 years as a project worth revising, adapting, and readdressing.  In 2021 the HBA has begun to work on a new proposal that is in it's very early stages.  To date a proposal has been drafted which is to be presented to the local community, interested community groups, possible sports facilitators, and then on to WDC for further consideration and consultation. Attached below is the draft proposal for public viewing.  The plan set out for the proposal process is as follows:Draft to go directly to affected residential properties and be issued for public display = April 2021Meeting for affected residents to attend = 20 May 2021Meeting for wider public = 3 June 2021Survey to be issued to community  = 7 June 2021 To view the draft plan, click here.Below is an overview of the appendices within the proposal: Appendix 1The property in discussion is a 186ha piece of council owned land currently not in use.  The proposal is to use a portion of it, as outlined below, for a variety of recreational sports.  Use the colour code below to understand the map:pink lines = border of the propertyorange lines = proposed area for archery course and target shootingblue lines = proposed area for multi-purpose track including horse treks, trail rides, mountain biking, and 4wd'spurple lines = proposed area for walking/running tracksgreen lines = proposed car park and access points from Gomez Road
