Discover Tasman: The Tasbay Rocky Shore

About Our Project

The McKee Domain Reserve is situated at Ruby Bay between the main coastal highway from Richmond to Motueka and the seashore. It is approximately 4 kms from Mapua School.

There are camping facilities at the Domain that are used extensively during the summer by local and visiting families. The rocky shore provides an abundant site for investigation and discovery.

We have chosen to explore and make comparisons between three tidal zones at the Domain because it is a site of community significance that also offers a rich environment for learning.
