Great news for boaties, Hauraki Rail Trail cyclists and the District in general. Stage 1 of the Historical Maritime Park’s $1.1 million project has begun. The project includes a riverboat (already purchased and currently awaiting refurbishment), a new wharf in Paeroa and new pontoons at the park.

The new wharf at Wharf Street is well underway and we hope to have it completed by September/October. The pontoons will be installed at the Park shortly.

By summer, we are expecting Stage 1 to be completed and visitors will be able to cruise into Paeroa by riverboat.

Watch this space for more information, to be sure you don’t miss the opening of the Wharf.
