Kauri Museum Forest Walkway Grand Opening

Whats On

The Kauri Museum at Matakohe, Kaipara, is offering free entrance for everyone to celebrate the opening of its new Forest Walkway on the weekend of July 22-23.

The Museum has undergone a large redevelopment recently and is inviting the public to come see the changes and enjoy the new environment.

About 100 guests are expected at a dawn ceremony on Saturday July 22 to mark the official opening of the project, after which the Forest Walkway and Museum will be open to the public.

There will be free entry to the Museum throughout the weekend to mark the opening.

The new walkway features a forest of tall “trees” – cleverly designed light boxes – which lead guests through a newly-built space alive with a natural soundscape. The work was part of a multi-phase project supported by a $3 million grant from the Provincial Development Unit.
