NZTA & Manawatu Events Equipment Trust - Gorge Walk

Sorry this event has been and gone


  • Sun 20 May ’12, 10:00am – 3:00pm


Manawatu Gorge Scenic Reserve, State Highway 3, Woodville


All Ages



NZTA, with the Manawatu Events Equipment Trust in support of the Palmerston North Rescue Helicopter, are inviting the public to the first official 'up close and personal' look at the site where the largest known slip to ever block a New Zealand highway came down last year.

The open day is being held in support of the Rescue Helicopter, and will be held on the Ashhurst side of the gorge between 10am and 3pm.

The Rescue Helicopter will be onsite to collect gold coin donations, and stalls selling food and other goodies will be in place at the Department of Conservation Carpark.

Free charter buses will be available on the day from Palmerston North, Ashhurst and Woodville.

Further details can be found at: www.nzta.govt.nz or contact Phil Pirie on 0274 412253.
