An educational and tourist centre in Foxton highlighting the local flora and fauna is central to our plans.
A series of aquaria, terraria and aviaries will highlight New Zealand native flora and fauna. A smaller number of tropical fish and exotic birds will be a comparison for school, university and other educational groups as well having an attraction in their own right for tourists.
Our location, just 130 metres off State Highway 1 at 48 Harbour Street, and on the banks of the Foxton Loop, will let us run river trips around the Loop to the Manawatu Estuary and the internationally acclaimed Ramsar area.
We are also an ideal starting point for both the Awahou Bush Boardwalk and the The Piriharekiki Walkway. There will be a restaurant [and bar] situated at the southern end of the site with access to the boat harbor and launching strip, both of which will be improved
