From the Residents of Onemana




Hi Everyone

As your community organisation, ORCA is offering the following assistance during the coming Level Four countrywide lockdown. We want to ensure that everyone residing at Onemana over the period is safe and well supported. Living amongst our community is a number of people with specialist skills and
knowledge that if required, can provide necessary assistance. Therefore if you need ANY support or assistance, and we stress ANY, then we have a single of point of contact you can use. Simply either telephone or text 0274 839 426 or you can email


Your request for assistance will be responded to and then passed on to one of your ORCA Committee members to action. Whether you simply require someone to talk to, you would like some shopping collected, the cat is stuck up a tree or whatever – please do not hesitate to make contact. Also if you are
aware of someone who is maybe vulnerable, then please let us know and make contact with that person.
Level 4 is very clear – we have to stay home and only mix with those of our own household. Walks and exercising can be undertaken but the two-metre rule must be applied when coming in contact with others who maybe out doing the same thing.
We do have people within our community providing essential services so you will see these neighbours coming and going over the lockdown period. Also if anyone outside of our Committee can offer any
assistance, we would love to hear from you to. And if anyone has any good ideas or activities to help pass the time during this period we would be happy to share those.
Our final message – our community comprises of many elderly residents and this is the section that is at greatest risk. So please take care, think of yours own safety, that of your family and your wider community. Remember for any assistance at all please give us a call or make contact. We look forward
to beating this and returning to normality at the earliest opportunity.
Your ORCA Committee.

Things to do in Onemana

There are numerous walks in and around Onemana. There are four reserves to explore providing easy strolls through the bush with opportunities to view the scenery from the seats placed at various vantage points. Additional tracks can be enjoyed through the forestry blocks and there is a coastal track down the peninsula to Pakahakaha ( known locally as Octopus Bay) and a further three stunning bays. In the opposite direction is the track to Pokohino Bay, situated to the north of Onemana. This is a steep track, leading from the carpark on Normans Road, which takes approximately 15 minutes down and 30 return minutes. All tracks provide excellent access for beach and rock fishing.

New Zealand Dotterel.

Onemana Beach is home to the endangered New Zealand Dotterel. Areas of the beach are fenced off at certain times of the year (usually from September until February). This is done in an endeavour to protect the dotterels and variable Oystercatchers during their nesting season. These birds easily abandon their nests if they are disturbed. Other birds that have been sighted are the Kereru and Pihoihoi (Pipit).
