St.Andrews that little settlement just north of Waimate.I think thats what its called.

No you dont need permission to access parikawa.Alot of people camp there and I think its either maintained by the MDC or DOC.I presume the gate is to keep stock from the neighbouring paddocks away from the main road should they get out.The area isnt fenced off on the beach side.I have been down there and past a cocky in the paddock on the southside and “g’day” was all I got.Got to be carefull though there is a couple of turn offs in the Parikawa area.Im trying to remember the name of the stream right next to the gate……will post soon :P

Mal, can the Waiau box be accessed by car easily? cheers
