Hunua pest control operation - important safety advice
In August and September 2015, a 1080 (sodium fluoroacetate) programme was carried out in the Hunua Ranges area. Hunua Falls was excluded, however visitors to the falls who are accessing other parts of the ranges should be aware of this important safety advice.
Caution signs will be up until early 2016
Children should be supervised at all times
Dogs should be supervised at all times and not allowed to scavenge
If you encounter a 1080 bait or carcass, do not touch or eat.
Refer to Hunua Project for further information and advice for dog owners here.

Keep Hunua Kauri healthy
Kauri dieback is a deadly disease, killing Kauri trees throughout the Auckland region. The Hunua ranges are currently a healthy Kauri area - help us keep it this way.
Kauri protection zones
Auckland Council has defined special areas of Kauri in the Hunua ranges for protection. These zones have dense Kauri forests so tracks pose a high risk of the disease entering the Kauri forest. Tracks through these zones have been closed to public access.
The Workman track (from Workman road to Mt Workman) a detour is in place.
Mangatangi trig track (east from the trig to Workman road).

Be aware from March to May is wasp season - and with the particularly dry weather they are around in increased numbers. If you have a known allergy do not go tramping without appropriate medication - mobile phone reception is limited in the Hunua Ranges.
