Map showing Maungarei Mountain (Mt Wellington)

Suitable for Ages: Families

Maungarei (Mt Wellington) has been carbon dated as appearing about 9,300 years ago when violent eruptions spewed lava out of the depths of the earth causing the land to buckle and twist.

The mountain became a hill pa between 1630 and 1700.

It is believed that over 2000 Maori once lived in the pa.
