A LIttle History - Manupirua Springs
Legend has it that the Manupirua Springs was one of those left by the sisters Kuiwai and Haungaroa while on their way to save their brother Ngatoroirangi. He was perishing with cold on Tongariro Mountain and they were bringing him warmth from Hawaiki.
Things to do
There are plenty of things to see and do around the lakes, rain or shine, old or young there is something for everyone. We’ve endevoured to provide links to website where possible, but please don’t forget that a lack of a website doesn’t mean somewhere isn’t worth visiting.
About the Lake Rotoiti Community Association
Advocating On Behalf of the Residents, Ratepayers and Users of Lake Rotoiti for 50 Years
During this period we have been involved in many issues, some of which have re-occurred with depressing regularity. Water quality issues were first raised in the 1970′s, but it took the rapidly deteriorating water quality and algal blooms in the early 2000′s and the determined and un-deflectable lobbying and actions of both this Association and other community based groups to force Local and Central Government to recognise that immediate action needed to be taken.
If as an organisation this had been our only achievement it would serve as a compelling reason why the Rotoiti community needs LRCA, but there have been many other issues that we have been involved in. One of the first, prompting the establishment of a formal ratepayers representative group, was a proposed railway line down the Okere Arm to Tauranga. We have also fought long and hard – and repeatedly – for Rating fairness and funding equity for the Rotoiti Community.
