Matakana No 7
Matakana No. 7 is a 24.006 ha block, situated on the corner of Opuhi and Matakana Point Road, Matakana Island. There is drive on access to the block from both Matakana Point Road and Opuhi Road.
Matakana No. 7 has a southerly aspect and is flat to undulating with some steeper sidlings in contour.
There is a natural spring that runs down from the western gully and causes swampy land leading to the ocean. Another watercourse runs down the eastern gully causing swampy land. The property borders the harbour and during high tides or high winds water comes over the flat low lying land on the southern boundary.
Soils comprise Katikati black sandy loam and Pongakawa shallow peaty loam. Katikati black sandy loam is derived from Waihi ash. It has a medium natural fertility and a good response to phosphate fertiliser. Pongakawa shallow peaty loam is derived from peat, Kaharoa ash or alluvium. It has a medium natural fertility and a good response to phosphate fertiliser and slight response to lime.
The effective area, approximately 14 hectares is currently utilised for dairy support. The balance of the land can be attributed to scrub, fern, beach and 6.4ha of native trees that were placed under a Nga Whenua Rahui Covenant in January 2016.
The assessed carrying capacity is 150 stock units.
