Top attraction in Tairua

Once an island, Mt Paku is a twin-coned volcanic peak that can be climbed from Paku Drive or from Ocean Beach in a steep 15- 30 minute walk to the summit. The walk offers various look-outs points to Tairua and Pauanui beaches and ranges, as well as different islands in the Pacific Ocean.

Much of Tairua's early settler history is told on story boards along the walk.
