Last Sunday morning at dawn I was down at the park watching the sun come up over the Hairini bridge.
Here's looking south from the park promontory towards the Welcome Bay hills over the golden oioi (Maori for 'to shake gently') wetlands (about 1.2 m - 4 feet - tall) and the Waimapu River:
Sixteen of this beautiful park's trees are the largest of their kind in the North Island of New Zealand.
There's the history of the park here.
And there's information about the lovely orange jointed rush oioi (Apodasmia (formally Leptocarpus) similis) here.
