Kauaeranga Valley Rd closed intermittently during the day for repairs
From 3–7 November and 10–14 November 2014 the Kauaeranga Valley Rd will be closed for defined times during the day to make repairs to the damaged section approximately 3 km past the Visitor Centre. The road will re-open at 10 am and 1 pm each day for half an hour to allow access. The road will also be open from 5 pm to 7:30 am after work each day. Visitors are advised to plan their arrival around these times to avoid delays.
The bridge at the bottom of the Billygoat track is closed due to flood damage so visitors need to cross through the river at this point. We don't advise doing this during or after heavy rainfall.
Maratoto off-road tracks
The gate to the Maratoto off-road tracks closes each year from approximately the end of May to enable track repairs over the winter.
