This event has been cancelled

Greater Wellington Regional Council is touched by the response from the community to the 2020 annual Ōtaki River walk on Wednesday 23 September 2020. Due to ongoing restrictions and uncertainty arising from COVID-19, our annual public river walkover for the Otaki River for 2020 has, unfortunately, had to be cancelled. We apologise for the inconvenience and thank you for your understanding. We hope to see you next year. Stay safe. 

Join us for the annual Ōtaki River Annual Gathering - it's your opportunity to learn first-hand from GW staff about the improvements we have made to the river bank over the past year, and get an overview of our plans for the future.

On the day you’ll be taken by bus up and down the river while discovering more about the implementation of the Floodplain Management Plan for the river and other maintenance work.

You will also be able to view the environmental enhancement and restoration works in progress.

The day is free. 

We are closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation, please note that we will only be going ahead with the event if we are at Level 1.

Therefore, we may need to cancel the event at short notice if the alert level is higher. Thanks for your understanding.

Duration: 4 hours
Price/Cost: Free. Please RSVP by Wednesday 16 September 2020.
