Tairua is a small town with a big friendly attitude. The people here are proud of our little community. It is most noted for the large cone that stretches high above the town. “Paku” is a twin volcanic cone that was once a Maori “pa” (fortification). The view from the top is quite dramatic and offers a 360 degree view out to the Alderman Islands and around to the mountain ranges. A stop at the top of Paku hill is a must for everyone traveling through!
