If you are in Tairua, you really shouldn't leave without going up to the summit of Mt Paku. You can drive partway up followed by a 10/15 minute walk to the top, or hike up from the bottom, which will take about 45 minutes. Do not forget your camera, the 360 degree view from the top is something special, from the Alderman Islands offshore to the Pinnacles on the ranges to the west. It's a little scrambly up the last little bit, but well worth it.
