The focus of this historical and cultural audio tour is the tales and myths that surround the Mount, including the arrival of the Maori in New Zealand at this spot aboard the Arowa Canoe.  Wander along white sand beaches and scale Mauao if you so choose, all while listening to the stories of the natives’ past.  Learn about the local tribes, the battles that took place between the Maori and the European settlers, and the lore that brings the mountain to life.
