Otatara Pa at sunset

Introduction

Otatara Pa Historic Reserve encompasses one of the most outstanding defensive and settlement complexes in New Zealand.

Highlights

The views from this site are outstanding. You can see Napier, across to Cape Kidnappers and out to the sea. It is possible on a clear day to see Ruapehu in the centre of the North Island.

It’s no wonder that Otatara was the most prized pa in Hawke’s Bay and its ownership was so strongly contested.
