about map

The Owhaoko B & D Trust administers seven land blocks comprising a total of 13,776 hectares or 34,042 acres.

It forms part of the Mōkai Pātea lands which belong to Ngāti Tamakōpiri, Ngāti Whitikaupeka and Ngāti Whiti Tama.

Located north of the Napier Taihape Road, the property contains a mixture of steep broken country, easy rolling tussock and moderately steep scrub and forest. 

The land is currently used for hunting and  recreational activities and the harvesting of Manuka honey.
