Trip Planner: South Pacific / New Zealand / North Island / Waikato Region / Coromandel Peninsula / Tairua / Mount Paku
Climb to the peak of Mount Paku, a twin-coned volcano that offers 360-degree views of the landscape and coastline. The hike is surprisingly short for such fantastic views, averaging about 20 minutes to reach the top. Stop for some photo ops and check out the educational displays identifying parts of the panorama and the area's history. The trail can get a little tricky and does not always provide handrails, so remember to wear comfortable shoes with good traction. Put Mount Paku and other Tairua attractions into our Tairua journey planner, and watch your holiday take shape.
