Very little is known or recorded about pre-European life on Urupukapuka. Our best record of the past is provided by numerous archaeological sites visible on the present-day landscape.
The complete Urupukapuka Island Walk (5 hr) is designed in a clockwise direction, and may be joined at most of the larger bays. This track generally follows the outer edge of the island passing various archaeological features.
Note: We are working to improve the interpretation panels along the track.
The track can be best joined from Otehei, Urupukapuka, Cable, Indico and Oneura/Paradise Bays.
