The Changing River and Access for Boats

Jet-boating enthusiasts find a way onto the river. We can see that from the 2013 World Jetboat Championship event held on southern rivers including the Waitaki.

Boat ramp

The proposed site on the North bank near the bridge has been compromised.
First by work done in 2012. See ODT report.
And later, by damage done during a flood. (Much of the work done as reported by the ODT was undone it seems).

Fishing and other access

This map of the Lower Waitaki River has all access location points and can be changed to show terrain.
The page uses Google Maps. Allow time for a lot of data to download!.
You can click on any marker for information, but wait until the cursor changes from a "hand" shape to a "pointing finger" (the map needs time to get ready).
