Views of Tauranga from the Minden Te Puna lookout


After relaxing on Saturday we drove out approx 15 minutes out of Tauranga to the Te Puna Minden Road lookout which as you can see by my photos below has sweeping views from before Mount Maunganui out all the way to Welcome Bay. Quite the scenery huh?



Out in the distance if you can see a large mountain that's Mount Maunganui - where we live :-)


This native NZ tree fern's leaves had turned to brown at the bottom as the old growth is falling away.


This one is my favourite, rain droplets on leaves and spent flower buds of a NZ native Five Fingered tree glisten in the overcast morning air.

  6. What a beautiful view. I am almost embarrassed that we haven't made it to your part of New Zealand yet, especially as it is probably less than 5 hours away.
