Maungawhau/Mt.Eden Tihi Boardwalk
Showcasing an award-winning sacred site.
More than one million tourists visit Maungawhau/Mt. Eden each year – it’s an Auckland icon – and that number will only grow in years to come. We’ve built the summit walkway to create a world-class tourist experience and to protect the sacred maunga (mountain) from its own success, so it’s here and unspoilt for the next generation.
The boardwalk is sensitively designed to blend with the landscape, not be dominant over it, and it’s built with care so as to have the least environmental impact on the maunga as possible.
Installation – a new highly durable steel frame boardwalk with a combination of timber and web forge cladding, providing the highest protection possible for this sacred site.
Upgrade – repairing sections of damaged track, and removing the communications building as part of site rehabilitation.
The Maungawhau / Mt Eden Tihi Boardwalk has won two Registered Master Landscapers – Landscapes of Distinction Awards;
