Many activities and places to visit await you in and around Doubtless Bay.
Beginning and ending at the historic Mangonui Courthouse, the Mangonui
Heritage Trail provides a glimpse of the great wealth of Māori
and European history associated with this area. Sites are indicated
by Heritage Trail numbers and markers. Each marker on the Heritage
Trail has a QR code which can be scanned by your device to see more
information about that site.
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 opposite 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.
You can take a "virtual" tour of the Heritage Trail by
the QR code trail here.
Or you can pick up a leaflet (NZ$1.00) from the Doubtless Bay Information Centre on Waterfront Drive, opposite the Mangonui Fish Shop.
