Hamurana Springs Walk
Hamurana Springs is a wonderful place to perk yourself up with a non-strenuous short walk (½hr tops) in a tranquil setting, far away from the drama of daily life.
And the water! Crystal clear but laced with shades of turquoise, jade and emerald, it looks so inviting it's hard to resist throwing your clothes off and diving right in.Not recommended on this occasion.
The Reserve is made up of the Hamurana Stream, a scenic walking track through a Redwood Grove, the main spring Te Puna-a-Hangarua, the Dancing Sands Spring and a wide variety of wildlife.
After this a drive back to Tauranga where we give you a short tour around Tauranga city to show you our slice of paradise.Then back to the ship or to the shops for a bit of retail therapy or a nice cold drink.
We guarantee that we will have you back to your ship on time.
