    Things to do in Tairua

    A fabulous harbour town on the Peninsula's east coast, Tairua 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 Tairua wharf and beach which are perfect for safe swimming and surfing in most conditions.

    Tairua was originally a milling and farming community.

    Across the water, is Pauanui, a purpose built holiday community that features the country's first canal housing development. The internationally acclaimed Puka Park Resort is also found here.
