Track closures in Howick
A track in the Point View Reserve has been temporarily closed to protect the area against kauri dieback.
The track enters the reserve from the Caldwell's Road entrance. We have installed temporary barriers around the feeding roots of other kauri to prevent damage.
You can find a map of the closed track on the Point View Reserve page.
