Mt Bowentown, Urupa and Pa sites
While on the Bowentown camp experience, students learn the significance of the area and surrounding landmarks. Sites include Anzac Bay,a historical trading and mariner stop over, and the Bowentown pa and Urupa sites. If you look carefully at the above picture you can see the stepped land adjacent to the top car park that designates where the palisades use to surround the top of the pa site and the lone structure of the Anzac Bay toilet block left from the long gone mariners and trading post. From the trig station (Maori look out) where the track leads to from the original Pa site, the view can only be described as spectacular with a vista as far North as the Alderman Islands and south to White Island and the East Coast.
