Soak up the vibe on this fun self-guided audio tour of Mount Maunganui. Mount Maunganui is a relaxed and happening place to get some sun and hit the beach. On one side of the Mount a stunning boat harbour and 5 minutes away an ocean beach perfect for surfing and swimming. This self-guided audio starts at The Harbour where you’ll learn much of the Maori history of the area and the tribal ancestry. Abundant seafood (Kaimoana) provided an attractive area for settlement. Now a popular spot for commercial and recreational fishing, canoeing, kayaking, boating, swimming with dolphins and much more. Next you will hear about Maunganui, the Maori meaning, big mountain. Learn about seafarers, traders and missionaries and trade between Europeans and Maori. Take a leisurely walk of the “base” track and if you’re up to it the Summit walk for spectacular 360 degree views. Hear the Maori legend of Mount Maunganui/Mauao, Tangaroa (the Maori god of the sea) and Te Kuia, the “old lady” who local fishermen pay homage to. Check out the nearby Islands, Matakana, Motiti and Tuhua and learn about New Zealand’s endangered Tuatara. Unwind in the perfectly heated thermal saltwater pools and baths. You will also visit Mount Drury Reserve, Maunganui Road, The Surf Museum and Bayfair shopping centre. Your tour, your pace.
