At the beginning of August, the Waitaki Whitestone Geopark team welcomed the team from Banks Peninsula Geopark / Te Pātaka o Rākaihautū Geopark to Waitaki to share learnings and insights with each other!

After lunch, the group headed inland from Ōamaru to Duntroon and were introduced to some of the geological and social stories this area holds. We stopped at Elephant Rocks as well as Takiroa Rock Art Site to have a better look at some of our Hero sites and had a tour through the Vanished World Centre.

Thank you to everyone for coming down and spending a great day in Waitaki! We had a wonderful time getting to know you and sharing our enthusiasm about Geoparks.
