The Hauraki District Council, Waikato Regional Council and DOC
The Karangahake Gorge is listed as one of the top 14 tourist attractions by Tourism New Zealand and for good reason. The area boasts multitudes of walking tracks, swimming holes, running and riding trails and rock climbing amongst the beautiful backdrop of the Karangahake Mountain. It is the perfect spot for adventure or just a relaxing day out at one of the many picnic spots.
So don't let this priceless conservation land be ruined for other people's gold.

Help stop the mining by joining the call to the Hauraki District Council, Waikato Regional Council and the Department of Conservation to protect Karangahake, our mountain and the Ohinemuri and Waitawheta rivers from the toxic gold mining industry.

Experiences in places like this make life awesome - mining not so much.
