Mauao's Base Track Walk
Mauao's Base Track Walk is one of New Zealand's most popular and best loved walks. This gently undulating 3.4 kilometre track winds around the base of Mt Maunganui and takes about 45 minutes to traverse.
Enjoy stunning views across the harbour to Tauranga and Matakana Island, wander off the beaten track down to the beautiful white sand beach and dip your toes, or relax on one of the many park benches along the way and watch as ships, boats and vessels of all shapes and sizes sail in and out of port.
The Mauao Base Track is wide and well kept, perfect for runners, prams and groups of people.
Ancient pohutukawa trees cling gracefully to the slopes of Mauao, offering shade and creating a magical "Christmas" feel when in bloom.
Tracks also lead to the summit for some of the best ocean and city views anywhere.
