The change & benefit we will see as a result of our actions are:
A strong, caring and vocal community
Awareness of the wonderful place that is Te Arai
Protected flora, fauna, land and seascapes
Safe roading to access Te Arai
There are 3 accessible beaches:
- Te Arai Beach or Eyre’s Point
- Black Swamp
Where you can walk the white sand, watch the blue sea, surf the amazing waves, catch yourself a fish, wander or ride into the regional park, enjoy the views, and cycle the roads. Te Arai is only 90 minutes from Auckland. Drive or cycle to the end of Te Arai Point Road and you’ll be at Te Arai beach. Dogs are not permitted on this beach. The dune roped-off areas also need to be kept human-free to ensure endangered Tara Iti (Fairy Terns), the Dotterells and Oyster Catchers are safe. Dogs, along with people, can enjoy Forestry beach, which you reach from Ocean View Road and Te Arai Black Swamp beach on Pacific Road – also the home of Tara Iti golf resort.
Love Te Arai are now working with Save Te Arai, the NZ Fairy Terns and Te Arai Preservation Society. We have submitted against the Sand Mining at Pakiri and Te Arai. We have filed a judicial review against a non-notified consent.
Join our community in protecting the flora, fauna, land and seascapes from activities which damage these precious taonga.
Founded in our community, we have banded together to preserve and enhance the natural ecology of the Te Arai region.
As a group, we help trap pests, do regenerative planting, treat kauri for dieback, monitor rare birds (Fairy Tern, Australasian Bitterns), and remove plastic from our beaches.
We are involved in caring for Te Arai so people who venture to our beautiful regional park, beaches, walking tracks, golf courses, horse riding trails, and events can enjoy the pristine environment.
