Mountains to Sea

Combining multiple feats of sustainable engineering such as vegetated filter strips and underground rock fill channels, a holistic stormwater solution has been created aligned to ki uta ki tai (mountains to sea) and Maori cultural values of Wai-Maori (freshwater).

Roads are positioned to minimise visual impact, avoid archaeological sites and provide user-friendly access to house sites with the best views on Waiheke. Gabion baskets, bollard lighting and regularly spaced passing bays provide that extra level of safety.

Having a private water bore consented and installed in the development ensures residents will benefit from a year-round water supply to supplement private water supply tanks. Firefighting water is also within reach in roadside hydrants in the event of the unthinkable.

An incredible 300,000+ native trees have been planted to cover the hills and valleys within Wawata Estate, in time creating a peaceful sanctuary that invites wildlife and provides privacy and seclusion. The surrounding wetlands have also been restored to ensure thriving natural environments and beautiful outlooks and re-establish them as a haven for wildlife.

Native species

Care has been taken to enrich the environment for the original residents of Wawata Estate, including rare geckos and lizards, wetland birds like the spotless crake and grey heron; and bush birds such as the fantail, tui, silvereye, grey warbler and kahu - the star of the Wawata logo.

Archeological history

A thorough archeological assessment of the site was undertaken to ensure the historical, cultural, spiritual and traditional features of this land were not compromised in any way. The sites remain identified - a part of Waiheke’s history and a fascinating enhancement of the Wawata environment.
