Freshwater wetlands

Henley Trust

An artificial Lake and Wetlands project on the North Eastern outskirts of Masterton.

Wildlife habitat with easy access and well formed tracks for walkers and cyclists.

Friends of Wharemauku Stream (FOWS)

Wharemauku Stream rises in hills inland from Paraparaumu. The main stream flows through  Paraparaumu Town Centre, then winds its way through Raumati to exit near the Raumati Beach shops. The aim of FOWS is to foster improved water quality and stream environment, in a stream which is a significant feature of an urban environment. A special feature of the stream is the role it plays in flood control and dispersal.
