East Harbour Regional Park Article September 2021

Posted on 15 September 2021

Back in 2013 the Mackenzie track received some TLC but now, eight years and many downpours later, the lower sections are showing strain from wear and tear. Before Christmas this section will get an upgraded in preparation for the renewal of the steps at the road entrance. The track will be closed for a period whilst this work is completed. Unfortunately this will be disruptive but the end result should be a big improvement.  We do not currently have dates for the step replacement but I will let you know as soon as we do.
