This intertidal site is located in the north-eastern side of the southern Kaipara Harbour, downstream of the Hoteo and Tauhoa Rivers. The site is characterised by firm, unvegetated sediment and often has strong ripples indicating wind and wave energy.
Monitoring began in 2009. Mud content and macrofauna are sampled every three months and heavy metal contaminants are sampled roughly every ten years. There are generally low concentrations of mud and the monitored contaminants.
