Kura Tāwhiti is located within the Waimakariri basin of the Southern Alps on State Highway 73, between Porters Pass and Arthurs Pass. The area is renowned for its iconic landscape and scenic beauty attracting 100,000+ visitors annually. The location has significant spiritual, cultural and historic values to the people of Ngāi Tahu and hapū, Te Ngāi Tūāhuriri Rūnanga.
This project will require new track construction that will extend through a portion of the limestone tors of the site. Additional upgrade work will be also required to the existing track. A newly established picnic area will require the construction of a new shelter, including further track work and surrounding fencing.
The project will be managed in joint partnership by the Department of Conservation and Ngāi Tahu.
