This is a group for anyone interested in coastal planting to restore the headland at Te Rakaihau Point. All skills levels are welcome.

We call our group TRiG (Te Rakaihau Restoration Group). We started this group because we care about the south coast outdoors and want to share this beautiful headland with everybody.

Many people know about Te Raekaihau Point between Princess Bay and Lyall Bay, but the headlandthat runs back from the Point to the end of View Road is less well known. It is also named Te Raekaihau and means “The headland that eats the wind”. The views from the Te Ranga a Hiwi ridge walk are spectacular. There is a network of tracks made by locals through the regenerating scrub and bushy gullies, and near the Northern end where the airport beacon is, sits the Alice Krebs Lodge, built by Kae Miller who lived there and started planting the headland in the 1980s. It is now used as a retreat.
