This area was included in the Waikanae Council Ward last October, previously part of the Otaki Ward. Most of it consists of typical NZ rural roads, but there is an urban beach village comprising a half dozen or so blocks.
Downtown Te Horo — a small collection of businesses at the intersection of the old SH1 and the Te Horo Beach Road. The photo standpoint is a new bridge created to cross over the roads and railway to connect with School Road which as the name suggests, contains the Te Horo school about 1 km southeast towards the hills.
The road to the beach closely follows the Mangaone Stream to the sea.
This sign warns people not to swim or fish in the Mangaone Stream — what pollutants are in it?
Where the stream enters the Tasman Sea.
A rather pretty display of blue and white agapanthus at the north end of Sea Road.
Unlike Waikanae and PekaPeka, the beach has a significant amount of sea washed gravel amid the sand.
There were no businesses obvious in the village and nothing else of note except for a large LGBTQ Rainbow flag flying over a property which we assumed was that of controversial local politician Michael P. Moore.
