New Bush Walk at Omaui in the Making
‘The new walking track up Omaui Hill is being formed. After several years of planning and fundraising the Omaui Tracks Trust has obtained the services of Joan and Phil Fluerty who have been working on tracks for the Department of Conservation for 15 years. Their digger makes a path 90cm wide and they try to replant any ferns dug out from the path of the track so damage is kept to a minimum. The track will be gravelled with volunteer help and it should be available by Christmas. Total length about two kilometres or about an hour’s reasonable hiking. The gradient is gentle. The track goes to the top of the hill then down on the southern side where there is a view of Foveaux Strait and Bluff Harbour, the Three Sisters, Barracouta Point and the wind farm at Flat Hill. The track will be an asset to Omaui. Come along and try it over the summer.’ Report from Lloyd Esler, Omaui Tracks Trust member.
