Drive along Twin Coast Discovery route to the entrance of the Pompallier Memorial Park. Approximately 7.5km from Kohukohu. Look for roadside signpost Centennial Plinth Bishop Pompallier.
Park your vehicle and walk across the cattle grid at the entrance. You will view the harbour before it narrows and enters the Mangamuka Gorge. You are at the location of the first mass, overlooking the water. Explore the area further with a short detour at the cattle grid on a track to the water’s edge and look for the jetty stumps. Perhaps this is the place of landing for the Bishop Francois Pompallier, Vicar Apostolic of Western Oceania.
DURATION 1 hour.
