A nudge in the right direction

Makara Peak Mountain Bike Park
Wayfinding


Rhianna worked on this project in collaboration with Oliver Ward, Josie Schultz, Rachael Jupp and Steph Tidey.

 

Makara Peak is a world-class conservation and mountain bike park in Wellington. With over 40km of track, it's a playground for mountain bikers, runners and walkers alike in a restored native forest bustling with bird life. Through a project developed in conjunction with the park’s volunteer group, recreational users and the local council, a team from Massey University’s School of Design was tasked with developing new wayfinding for the park.

The new system builds on existing internationally recognised mountain bike grading systems and aims to make Makara Peak easier to navigate, increasing accessibility for new riders and tourists.
