Onemana Residents and Community Association.

Our association takes care of the things that matter to a modern coastal community.

The aims of ORCA are:

  • To assist in the beautifying and development of the Onemana township and surrounding areas for the benefit of all residents and visitors to the area. This involves providing and developing sporting and social amenities for owners and visitors alike.
  • Undertake representations on behalf of members to local, national and other authorities concerning matters affecting the welfare, development or protection of land and property in Onemana.
  • To inform and communicate to members information regarding activities, events and matters of general interest to Onemana.
  • To involve members in sub-committees established to undertake particular tasks where specific skill sets maybe used.

The community relies on the work many residents regularly put into to maintain the village environment, facilities, walks, dunes etc. ORCA calls for working bees from time to time.

Volunteers are sought for specific projects in and around the village.
