Tauwhare Pā

  • Walking
  • Cycling

Tauwhare Pā was built several hundred years ago and overlooks the western arm of Ōhiwa Harbour. This strategic location lies between two tribal territories - Ngāti Awa in the west and Whakatohea in the east. The walk around Tauwhare is an opportunity to learn something of the district's history and enjoy brilliant views over the harbour to Ohakana Island, Port Ōhope and the East Cape.
