04-Mar-2010

The Berrysmith Foundation has announced the purchase of a unique coastal property on the Karikari Peninsula on Northland's far East Coast.

The 600 acre property is immediately adjacent to Mt Puwheke and has strong cultural, ecology and environmental significance. Features include a wetland, two lakes (including Lake Rotokawau), regenerating native forest, sand dunes and 6 km of pristine white sand beach.

Announcing the acquisition, Ashley Berrysmith said that Puwheke was a truly unique example of New Zealand's natural bio-diversity and in keeping with the trust's vision of creating a legacy was a long-term strategic investment for the trust. Puwheke was a truly unique example of New Zealand's natural bio-diversity and would be the obvious site to deliver on many of the Foundation's educational, environmental and research ambitions.

In keeping with the Trust's vision of creating a legacy that can be shared, Puwheke will be developed as an 'edu-tainment' styled destination that combines education with entertainment to create a high impact learning experience.
