Papamoa Hills Regional Park (Te Rae o Papamoa)
History, culture and heritage
The Park is significant in New Zealand's archaeological
landscape as there are few examples of historical occupation of
such complexity in such a relatively small area. This can
be attributed to a large extent to the careful management of the
land by the McNaughton family since the late 1800s. It is an
extremely valuable public asset that should be preserved and
celebrated in the future. Learn more.
Walking trails are Papamoa Hills Regional Park's main feature.
Take a stroll through the farmland and enjoy the panoramic coastal
views. For more information on walking in the Park, including a
