After an early start from Auckland, our first stop is a walk through the Karangahake Gorge. The trail leads us through forested paths alongside the Ohinemuri River andinto old mining tunnels. See the relics from an earlier time that have been abandoned along the trail.
Nextwe will visit the Owharoa Falls. A great photo opportunity and chance to swim if you choose.
Then it's back in the van an onto the gorgeous town of Mount Maunganui. You have the choice to hike to the Summit of Mount Maunganui, for stunning views of the town and surrounds, or for an easier option, take the Base Track. The path winds around the mount, through farmland and forested trailsat ground level.
Bring your own lunch to picnic on the beach or visit one of the great beachfront cafes of bakeries.
Follow up this great with a swim. In summer we'll swim at the beautiful Mount Beach, and on the colder days we'll enjoy a relaxing soak in the hot pools at the base of the Mount.
