Tamahunga, Mt

Opened 2001 as part of the Te Araroa walkway (which aims to run the length of New Zealand), Mt Tamahunga is a short but reasonably hard tramp. Conditions underfoot can be tricky, and although views from the summit are obscured, there is a rocky lookout which provides good views.

For more information on the walk and access information, visit the DOC Tamahunga page
