Oparara Valley Track Opening

Posted On 16 October 2008

On November 8th, Professor David Bellamy will be opening the much awaited Oparara Valley Track.

This track climbs the Oparara river gorge from the edge of the National Park and mountains, about 5km from Karamea to reach the renowned Oparara Basin, previously only accessible via road or helicopter.

The new track is the work of the Oparara Valley Trust, which was set up to make the Oparara Basin the premium visitor attraction on the northern West Coast. The valley track marks the final stage of the project.

New picnic tables, toilets and information boards have recently been installed at the basin carpark.
