Heritage Trail of Mangonui -
Te Ara Tuku Iho o nga Tupuna Matua o Mangonui

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 following the QR code trail here.
