Expressions of Interest – Woodhill and Riverhead Forests
Request for Expressions of Interest – Woodhill and Riverhead Forests
Ngā Maunga Whakahii o Kaipara Ngahere Ltd (NMWoKNL) is the commercial entity that manages the forestry and related interests of the Ngāti Whātua o Kaipara hapū (sub-tribal grouping). These are based around the c. 12 500 hectare estate of Woodhill Forest and the c. 500 hectare Ararimu Block of Riverhead Forest.
While the core land-use in both forests is, and for the remainder of this century at least will continue to be, pine timber production, they also support a range of other activities.
Woodhill is a well-known adventure/recreational destination in Auckland, catering (through licensed operators) for mountain biking, high-wire tree climbing/ziplining, off-road motorcycling, four wheel driving, paintball and guided horse-riding. NMWoKNL itself manages the Kake Hōiho horse park.
NMWoKNL wishes to build on Woodhill Forest’s position as an adventure/recreational tourism destination and to further explore what other non-tourism businesses could locate there.
It is intended that through this request for expressions of interest, they can identify and then work with potential partners to examine the viability of new offerings / businesses in the forests.
