Mt Hobson (Ōhinerau) – Have Your Say

20 July 2015

Auckland’s volcanic cones are now managed by a statutory authority – the Tūpuna Maunga o Tāmaki Makaurau Authority – which is developing a management plan that will set the foundations for how Auckland’s ancestral mountains, or maunga, are restored, protected and managed in the future.

The Orākei Local Board is urging people to submit their suggestions for the future of Mt Hobson (Ōhinerau). The themes will consider topics such as pedestrian use, cycling and vehicle access, recreation, tourism, track and roading networks and signage.

What do you want to see on the mountain? Should there be set walkways? What about mountain bike use – should there be set cycling paths or no cycling? How do you feel about the daffodil memorial gardens, and what sort of signage should we have on the maunga?

People have until 5pm on Friday, 31 July to submit their thoughts on what they would like to see included in the management plan.

Suggestions can be emailed to .
