Te Tapatoru a Toi and The Department of Conservation are working towards revamping the entrance to Tauwhare Pa situated between Ohope and Ohiwa.
DOC project Manager Luke Archbold said they are working on a carved gateway so that travellers are aware of the concept of Tauwhare Pa.
A place that will also serve as a rest area with food tables spread at the bottom of Tauwhare Pa and which won’t encroach on the pa site itself.
Kei te whakarite Te Tapatoru a Toi raua ko Te Papa Atawhai kia whakahou i te tomotanga o te pa tawhito Tauwhare kei waenganui i Ohope me Ohiwa.
