Eyes on Whangateau Harbour

Eyes on Whangateau Harbour

The Whangateau Harbour is a relatively unspoiled estuary, one of the few in the Auckland Region, with abundant marine life and a wealth of healthy intertidal habitats and estuarine plants. Thanks to its small catchment area, impacts from silt and fertiliser run-off have not been severe. With the right weather conditions, the water in the harbour is a pure, clear snorkeler’s paradise. The Whangateau HarbourCare Group is committed to keeping this very special harbour in the best condition possible for the well-being of wildlife and marine life and for the enjoyment of present and future generations.

To publicise and advocate for the harbour’s outstanding natural values the Whangateau HarbourCare Group is presenting an exhibition of the work of local photographers. The exhibition entitled “Eyes on Whangateau Harbour” shows about 30 superb pictures which capture the natural magic of the harbour’s dry and wet habitats, their plants and their creatures.

The exhibition is currently running at the Discovery Centre adjacent to the Leigh Marine Laboratory at Goat Island Bay. Entry is by normal fee ($10 per adult, plus other options) and is open during normal Discovery Centre opening hours Thursday to Sunday 10am to 4pm. The exhibition will run to the end of February 2013.
