STAGE two of the Ohiwa Heritage Trail is nearing completion.

At the Ohiwa Harbour Implementation Forum meeting held at Whakatane District Council chambers on Monday, Bay of Plenty Regional Council land management officer Tim Senior said panels outlining the cultural history of the Ohiwa Harbour would soon be installed.

They will complement the 12 interpretation panels that were installed around the harbour in October 2018.

“The first stage was about the natural history and we’re now adding the cultural history,” Mr Senior said.

“While the term ‘trail’ generally denotes something to be walked or cycled, it’s expected that most people will drive the trail due to the distance involved.”
