A section of the Ngā Tapuwae o Toi walkway, on Kōhī Point Scenic Reserve will be closed to the public from 6 am – 6 pm on Tuesday, 27 August 2019, to enable a Police operation with dogs to be carried out.

The Ngā Tapuwae o Toi walkway will be closed between the Seaview Road and West End Beach including the Kapu Te Rangi Pā, and Ōtarawairere Village entrances. Warning signs will be posted at entrance points to the track, and these points will be staffed to ensure no-one enters the track while the operation is underway.

Whakatāne District Council apologises for any inconvenience caused by the track closure, and thanks the public and visitors for their cooperation while this important Police operation is carried out.
