Take a paddle around the wild wild West

December 19th, 2016 Posted by Uncategorized 0 thoughts on “Take a paddle around the wild wild West”

Why don’t you grab yourself a stand up paddleboard and check out the Rangitahi peninsula over the holidays?

Yip, we are all about outdoor action here in Raglan, and you could easily do it with the whole family.

Not only does Raglan’s coastal setting lure you into a surfer’s dream mecca, but the beautiful harbour inlet provides such a sense of tranquility that you feel like you could be venturing into an untouched paradise…which you pretty much are.

As you know, the Rangitahi Peninsula is surrounded by these peaceful waters, with only moments from the hub, you can have your coffee and cake and eat it too.

Enjoy breakfast amongst the bustling central hub of artists, travellers and boutique shops, then go and grab yourself a paddle board.  There are a few local places to hire them from if you haven’t bought your own.

Forget the car, go and explore the rustic colours, the cool rock formations, the little nooks and cranny’s surrounding this native new zealand wonderland we call Rangitahi.

Take it all in, and dream up a storm.

Hey, you could always chuck a picnic in the backpack too.

The views from the shed are stunning, and all the info you need to discover the Rangitahi Peninsula will be here.

Sophie and Sam are the people to talk to for sure.

Yes folks, that’s right, this is a family affair, which means plenty of passion, plenty of understanding and plenty of connection to the land.  There is huge heart here when it comes to creating a blueprint of what a new, sustainable fun community should look like.

The Bridge to Rangitahi

December 15th, 2016 Posted by Uncategorized 0 thoughts on “The Bridge to Rangitahi”

Exciting plans for the new bridge are underway!

This will provide access for people to explore the many walkways, cycling tracks and dream like paths through the bush to be found on the Rangitahi Peninsula.

This new exciting ‘gateway’ can be found in Raglan West, connecting the headland of

Opotoru Rd with the Rangitahi Peninsula.

At the moment, the current bridge is a one lane structure and is only accessible to vehicles at medium to low tide.

But this isn’t just going to be your average bridge people.

It will be a piece of art in itself!

A local Architect has created something pretty special on the side facade’s.  We can’t wait for the unveiling!

The Bridge has been well thought out, with great respect for the natural estuarine environment.

The Rangitahi Peninsula is set to be a perfect model for sustainable urban living, a neighbourhood of both weekenders and full time residents with reserves, a few local shops, and even a ‘produce to plate’ style restaurant.
The building of the bridge will commence in 2017, with a full management plan in place to minimise construction traffic.
