The Department of Conservation has received $1.5 million in this year's budget to substantially complete the Te Araroa Trail Long Pathway from Cape Reinga to Bluff. The funding will enable the completion of a number of sections of the trail totaling 244km. The trail will be refined and improved over time, but the progress that the grant makes possible will be sufficient for the Te Araroa Trust to consider opening the trail towards the end of this year, The Te Araroa Trail complements the New Zealand Cycle Trail, cementing New Zealand as an outdoors tourism destination.
