Matakatia Scenic Reserve, (entry from) Beauvoir Ave, Whangaparaoa Peninsula
Auckland 0930
New Zealand
We conserve Matakatia Scenic Reserve (also known as Matakatia Glade), an Auckland Council-owned area of bush located between residential area and the sea on the southern side of the Whangaparaoa Peninsula (near Gulf Harbour). Local volunteers get together to remove weeds, plant bare land areas and replenish bait stations. The history section expands on our vision and our efforts and achievements to date. We rely on the support of surrounding residents for access and to allow us to remove weeds from their land that can spread into the reserve.
