    Things to do in Pauanui

    A fabulous harbour town on the Peninsula's east coast, Pauanui offers a superb setting beside the Pacific Ocean.

    Close by is Paku, a twin-coned Maori pa sculptured hillside that was once an island while offshore lies the Slipper, Shoe and Alderman Islands.

    A number of charter and fishing boats operate from both Pauanui and Tairua wharves and the beaches are perfect for safe swimming and surfing in most conditions.

    Neighbouring town Tairua is the older of the two towns and originally a milling and farming community.
