Viewing platform improvement

The Manawatu Estuary Trust is currently undergoing a Consultation Phase for a proposed project to improve the viewing platform located at the end of Dawick Street. 

The aim of our viewing platform improvement project is to enlarge the present viewing platform at the end of Dawick Street, Foxton Beach, adding a roof to provide shelter from sun and rain.


This would make an all- year, all- weather site that local residents, international visitors and educational classes alike can use to observe the flora, fauna and tidal fluctuations of the estuary.

We would welcome your comments and input on our vision to enhance the viewing platform, and will have a period of consultation to seek these views. This consultation period is from 12 July 2019, and ends 10th August 2019. A submission form can be found here.


We will have an open day at the Holben Pavilion on Saturday, 3rd August, 2019 from 10 am to 12 noon when you can come and add your ideas.
