Waioeka Gorge

8 November, 2009





Three of our group decided they would take the main road down
the Waioeka Gorge instead of riding the Motu Road.





It's a long gorge - in fact it's a long and winding road.

Sometimes the road is just stuck on the cliff not far above the river.

This historic "harp" bridge was built in the early '20s to serve the
Tauranga Valley community which no longer exists.
