Kia ora from Whakatāne District, the sunniest place in the world (that Kiwis can get to right now) and where wild kiwi are in such close proximity to the town centre that you can hear them calling from your water front motel room.  This region has been through so much, but is in good heart and determined to get stronger.  We are looking forward to working alongside WDC, iwi, industry and communities throughout the region to contribute to their success.

So in this chilled out, spectacular region, why wouldn’t we kick start the project with Nicola at WDC over an ice cream at Ōhope Beach, voted New Zealand’s most loved beach.
