Heritage Trail of Mangonui

Te Ara Tuku Iho o nga Tupuna Matua o Mangonui

Beginning and ending at the historic Mangonui Courthouse, the Mangonui Heritage Trail provides a glimpse of the great wealth of Maori and European history associated with this area. Sites are indicated by Heritage Trail markers. Some of these provide information at the site itself, others have a number which will refer you to details in the trail brochure.

The Trail is three kilometres in length and accessible by foot or vehicle. The average time that it takes to walk the Trail is one and a half hours. Walkers are advised to take the St. Andrew's Walkway (from Beach Road oposite the Police Station) to access sites and enjoy the spectacular views from above Mangonui. Please be aware that Mary Hassett Street, Tasman Street and Thomas Street are very steep.

Pick up a leaflet (NZ$1.00) from the Doubtless Bay Information Centre on Waterfront Drive, adjacent to the Courthouse.
