The great success of an Onerahi heritage book has led to the launch of Heritage Trails brochures for the seaside suburb.

In November last year, Onerahi Resource Centre Trust released a book compiled of the historical documents and memories of locals - True Tales of Onerahi.

The book was so well received by the community, it was decided that the Heritage Trails of Onerahi brochures would consequently be launched to continue to raise the profile of Onerahi's history.

The two trail brochures will be launched October 28 and follow two different routes plotted with checkpoints of Onerahi's most historical locations, including Onerahi Wharf and Yacht Club.


The first trail is estimated to be an hour-and-a-half walk and the second trail, a three hour walk or two hour leisurely cycle.

The brochures have been created by the Onerahi Resource Centre trust with the support of funding from the Trusts Community Foundation and Pub Charity.

Trust member Agnes Hermans said the trails and brochures are about "telling the stories of the community" in a more accessible way.

"When you understand the history of your community, it helps you to feel connected."

Both brochures will be launched alongside a public heritage photography exhibition also organised by the trust, at the Whangarei Airport terminal building in Onerahi.
