Muriwai, a picturesque community nestled along the rugged West Coast of Auckland, has been hit hard by landslides and floods in recent weeks. The devastating events have shaken the tight-knit community, revealing a history of natural disasters.
Despite the hardships, Muriwai Beach remains a unique attraction for locals and visitors. Its dramatic black sand coastline, towering rock formations, and diverse wildlife make it an ideal destination for nature lovers, water sports enthusiasts, and those seeking a peaceful retreat.
Surfers flock to the beach yearly for the National Surfing Championships, while kite surfers and windsurfers take advantage of the strong winds and waves. The area also boasts a network of walking tracks, including the famed Hillary Trail, offering breathtaking views of the Tasman Sea and surrounding bush.
However, the recent landslides and floods have left the community reeling, and rebuilding will require a comprehensive approach. It is crucial to involve experts from different fields to assess land stability, analyze flood risk, and determine the best action to mitigate future disasters.
The community must also have a voice in the decision process to eat their needs and concerns are heard and addressed.
