Mount Paku gives a panoramic view of Tairua and Pauanui. The harbour and coastline is so picturesque, you will be missing out if you do not climb this peak when you are in the area.

This is a must do when visiting Tairua, and was one of the best hikes I've found for bird watching in Feb. on the north island.

Switchback through the neighborhood takes you to the top for a good view of the ocean and the estuary. In the woods near the top we spotted a pair of Morepork owls which was a highlight

If you are visiting the area, a short walk up to the lookout at Mount Paku will reward you with superb views of Tairua and the many islands offshore. It's well worth the effort, and not that big a climb from the car park (less than 15 minutes).

Great hike, beautiful views, easily accessible and close to town. Easy to moderate difficulty with breathtaking views all along the climb.
