To the Top of Taranaki

In the footsteps of the Māori ancestral hero, Tahurangi

First published 15 January, 2022, on my website a-maverick.com.

THIS January, I took another trip to the wonderful province of Taranaki, this time from the north along State Highway 3, past the tiny village of Uruti.

A map of Taranaki and Whanganui, from the area just north of Uruti on the coast, and Taumarunui on the Whanganui River, southward. North at top; forested areas, mostly native bush, are shown as green.
