The land is mine, inherited from my ancestors

The Owhaoko A East and A1B blocks are 6,958 hectares of mountainous land nestled between the Kaimanawa and Kaweka Forests in the central north island of New Zealand. Read about us in Te Ao Maori News.

With steep hillsides draining into open alluvial terraces alongside the Ngaruroro River, these lands have nourished and provided for the people who lived and travelled through the area for hundreds of years. The topography of the land has been affected by numerous volcanic eruptions over thousands of years. The highest point, Makokomiko, towering above the valleys at 1454m (4770 ft) above sea level.

There is a wide array of native plants across the lands, including a number of rare species. Mountain Beech and Manuka are abundant on the warmer hillsides, while red tussock thrives on the valley floors.
