A forty minute bus ride out will let your breakfast settle as you journey to Rawhiti and the start of your walk.

Pukehuia is a significant maunga or mountain, on the landscape of the southern arm of the Bay of islands, Ipipiri. The first hour is spent ascending to the high point with frequent stops for rests and photographs. The stop at the top is an opportunity to bunch the group up again and fill the water bottles – perfect for that ultimate photo of the Bay of Islands.

The hard yards complete the rest of the walk journeys down a south facing ridge with young kauri grove mingled with mature podocarp and broadleaf forming the canopy. Witness the recovery from pest control efforts, enjoy views of distant Mimiwhangata and the horizontal Poor Knights.

Joining up with the Whangamumu Track options to spend time above the harbour before turning your back to the ocean and descending down the old farm track to Tongatapu Wetland, a local restoration project of replanting. Time to search for the elusive fernbird until your bus arrives.
