Pauanui 50th Anniversary

Pauanui: 50 Years in Paradise

50 YEARS AGO ON 19TH OCTOBER 1968
THE FIRST LOT OF SECTIONS WERE SOLD IN PAUANUI

As you ascend the beautiful concrete driveway winding around a perfect hilltop, you can just feel you are about to see something magnificent. The driveway at the top flows onto a expansive concreted area and there before your eyes appears a beautiful home crafted out of Hinuera Stone.

Owners of NuVista Homes Brad and Rachel say this was a build close to their hearts and a labour of love from planning to completion – a dream come true for their grandparents Henry and Ann Clothier.

This beautifully built home was built with much love by many family hands. As well as the team from NuVista, the construction crew also included Richard Clothier, the eldest son of Henry and Ann, their grandson Ross McVerry, and Max Clothier, another grandson who worked on the build during time off from his other jobs.

LOCATED JUST TWO HOURS SOUTH OF AUCKLAND ON THE COROMANDEL PENINSULA, PAUANUI IS A FAVOURITE HOLIDAY DESTINATION & GATEWAY TO EVERYTHING THE COROMANDEL HAS TO OFFER

THE OUTDOORS ARE YOURS TO EXPERIENCE IN PAUANUI – WHETHER YOU WANT TO GO HIKING, FISHING OR JUST WALK ALONG THE BEACH

There is so much to do and see right on Pauanui’s doorstep. The fabulous twin harbour towns onThe Coromandel’s east coast, Tairua and Pauanui, provide a superb base for exploring the Pacific Coast. Close by is Mt Paku, a twin-coned Maori pa site on a sculptured hillside that was once an island. Try hiking up Mount Pauanui for a stunning view of Pauanui. Not for the faint hearted, this is a fairly strenuous climb but well worth the effort. Located at the south end of the beach, the Mount Pauanui summit offers a sensational vista north over the beach and the rest of Pauanui.

Or how about a ten minute walk to Flat Rock – this is an easy track, which leaves the southern end of the beach at the end of Pauanui Beach Road. It undulates gently through the bush with some rock hopping from Flat Rock through to Cave Bay, with great views along the track looking back along the beach.

Looking for a day trip? Then why not drive for 60 minutes to the Pinnacles Track, which climbs through ruggedly beautiful mountain ranges in the Coromandel Peninsula. It’s one of New Zealand’s most popular overnight walks.

Paunanui is full of surprises and steeped in history. Congratulations on the 50 year anniversary – it’s exciting to imagine what the next 50 years will bring!
