Mountain Journal has been reporting on the proposal to build a cable car up the face of kunanyi/ Mt Wellington for several years. The community resistance to this plan has been solid, determined and strategic. Local residents group Residents Opposed to the Cable Car (ROCC) have organised a walk and action to celebrate the beauty of the mountain, to be held on Sunday OCT 7.
Members of the local community are organising a walk and action to celebrate the beauty of kunanyi/Mt Wellington and the Organ Pipes next Sunday (October 7th) meeting at the old Springs hotel site at 1.45pm.
You can RSVP on Facebook to find out more.
There is also a lovely short video from Rob Blakers about the mountain available here.
