Visit Mount Paku, which is an old Maori Pa, and takes 15 minutes to walk to the summit. From here, there are panoramic views of Pauanui. You could also hire a fishing launch, to appreciate great sea fishing from this area.

If you appreciate nature, visit the Twin Kauri Scenic Reserve, which is a 5min drive from the town where you can see twin native kauri’s and a nice peaceful walk. The Puketui Valley is up the Tairua River and there are plenty of walks available which take you thrugh kauri logging and goldmining areas of the Broken Hills.

For the more adventurous there is horse trekking or kayaking for exploring the area, where you can go through the wetlands in the kayaks. You could also catch a passenger ferry over to the ever popular Pauanui.

Catch a bus to Tairua with nakedbus, if you would like a peaceful break from the rest of the world.
