Walked around here after tea one night and it was a nice way to watch the sun go down. I’ll definitely be back for many more walks, well worth it! Don’t hesitate, just do it. It’s a really easy track.

The Mount base track is very beautiful. Spectacular sea views right around the track. A must do for anyone visiting the Bay of Plenty.
