Animals present are pigs and red deer.
This block is part of the Waipori Falls Scenic Reserve.
It is situated at the southern end of the Maukaatua Range, southwest of Mosgiel. A significant amount of silver beech/tahina, kānuka, broadleaf and podocarp forest covers the block, while there is a small amount of tussock on the tops, on the true left of the valley.
This block is split into four roar blocks.
Blocks are allocated through a ballot draw and are allocated for a three or four-day period.
The balloted period is for the 20 March to 20 April.
Applicants will be advised by e-text of the outcome of the draw by the first Friday in December.
Successful applicants must confirm their block before the third Friday in December, via email or phone.
If confirmation has not been received by the third Friday in December, the booking will be cancelled, and the block reallocated – no reminders will be issued.
Any unconfirmed blocks will be available to parties that were unsuccessful in the ballot draw.
Any remaining blocks will be made available to all hunters who did not enter the draw.
The roar permits will be emailed/mailed out to roar block holders on or after 23 January.
At this stage, no administration fee will be charged for the roar ballot, although this fee may be introduced in future ballots to cover the costs associated with administering the roar block system.
Access is via Waipori Falls Road from Berwick, with the first access point being the car park at the start of the Government Track. The second access point is about 1 km further up the road at the picnic area. The road to both access points is suitable for all vehicles.
Access from both points to the hunting block is marked but you need to ask permission from the landholder.
